A quick post to say my worries about password usage and some errors peoples usually do!

 

For computers, it’s really quick to find a password if it’s something easy like <A simple word> <A short number> especially if it’s something often used by everyone!

So what to do to protect yourself?

A password like <Xzazdaz2%> are often used and recommended right now, but this isn’t really long and also really hard to remember! Let’s have a look at this password using the following sentence:
<Todayisthedayi’mcreatingareallylongpassword> –> Today is the day I’m creating a really long password.

This is easy to remember and hard for a computer to guess. Your account would probably be protected against password crackers.

Also, it’s imperative that you use one different password for each different site / game you use.
Why? Because if your password on the website http://exemple.org is stolen, then your password on http://email.org/ would also be !

So be careful and wise! Start using strong and different passwords!
