Okay, I’m in trouble. Now what?

First thing: change your password . No, seriously. You can use some tricks to generate secure and easy to remember passwords , or you can also use a password manager that can generate secure and also store them to access them.My particular favorite is 1Password . More safety tips:

  • Do not use the same password for all your services . If you can use a different in each, better yet.
  • Do not use a password that includes your personal details .Only you will be getting easier to who knows you.
  • Better the more complex . Including uppercase, lowercase, numbers, symbols …
  • Size matters . Ten characters are better than eight, thirteen are better than ten, twenty are better than thirteen …
  • Just let your devices to reliable hands . May otherwise be easy to extract stored passwords. Now let alone if you aim for a simple plain text in a Notes application to use.
