Why? Well, passwords aren’t so tough to crack, are they? Not really and for me, the remembering has always been the “toughest” part of same. But let me explain, eh while you look over this infographic from ZoneAlarm….
Had a client call just last week and asked if I could help them come up with a better password for their LinkedIN account…seems they’d been hacked somehow and while it was not a big deal in the scheme of things, it was worrisome enough to get them to call us.
My first question was, just how tough had they made their password to begin with…and as is most usual, they had no idea about my point at all. “We just used our company name and then added a 99 at the end….” was their reply and that made me begin to think about this error in judgement.
