Bias? Who? Me?

I love TED talks.  I don’t care what country they are from.  Though, to be true, I love Australia a lot.

Less than 15 minutes.  Entertaining.  Informative.  Right on…

Your Money or Your Life (But, Your Password Will Do)

Some time ago, I published a post in which I tried to help people create a good password.  I still think my way is an excellent one.  Of course, 12-16 digit random characters including capital, small letters, numbers, and special characters is really hard to beat.  Anyway, here is an somewhat entertaining TED talk about passwords.  It’s less than 10 minutes and may help you.  After it, I will tell you, briefly, how I have made some really good passwords.

Now, simply put, try this:

1)  Use at least 12 characters (10 in a pinch)

2) Use numbers, letters (capital and small), and special characters.

3) Don’t follow a pattern

4) Change it fairly frequently

5) Password Guardians such as Norton’s password manager can help you.

6)  Don’t ever reuse a password

7)  Never just change a letter or a number when making a new password

8) Don’t repeat passwords

Ex.  12345 is a horrible password, so is any 8 digits or 8 letters, same case  (even mixed is poor)

Strong password:  how about:  rjdhFh2$#%fSncy  (16 randoms)

You only need to be hacked once – one poor password can allow that.
