every 3 months, i change my passwords. i am in the process of doing that now. not being the “brightest crayon” in the memory box to begin with, it causes quite an upset in my world of internet use for a week or so. however, because i am on my computer daily and use it as my “gateway” to the world, the security and peace of mind it gives me is worth the drama.
with advanced technology that keeps getting more creative to access accounts, target being a recent reality check for many, i use different passwords for different accounts. i have attached a few links that provide great information.
http://www.wisegeek.org recommends the following; When changing your password, it is imperative that you keep in mind the following tips. First, choose a word that no one knows and no one would be able to guess. Then combine your chosen word with a selection or numbers or letters for extra security. Make it case-sensitive as well, since those that include both upper and lowercase letters are more difficult to figure out.
today i am thankful for ..
- there is no place like home
- my circle of women who inspire and motivate me
- right now, the cup of strong starbucks coffee i am drinking!
thank you for taking time from your day to read my words. i value and appreciate you. pay it forward today. i bought the person behind me a cup of coffee and they in turn bought the person behind them theirs. i hope it continued.
affectionately yours, Laura
