How many people get hacked everyday? Thousands? Millions? Why? Studies have shown that people are lazy and hate using different, complex passwords for every site that may ask for you to create an account. eBay. PayPal. Facebook. Twitter. Google. How many can you possibly have? What is the best method for keeping these spam artists at bay and keeping your personal information safe? Well, as many IT specialists and professionals will tell you, the best method is to make your passwords a sentence. That’s right, a sentence… complete with proper punctuation and grammar. Don’t forget the spelling by the way (and spaces), and your passwords will enter into the 128 bit encryption range, giving the hackers across the planet a reason to move on from trying to access your account, and on to another account that will be much easier crack that your password that is an entire sentence. If the site you are attempting does not support this level of complex passwords, reconsider weather or not you really need to make an account on the site or if they are just trying to trick their users into giving up their email in order to pass it along to data gathering companies and spammers.
What is the going to be the next big thing in password security? I believe something is going to have to be done with the direction things are going with regards to everyone having digital lives that need protecting. The highest hurdle is having a single system that signs you on to every website you need or use. With a single point of failure, it will be difficult, if not impossible to keep your one password secure. Or would it? Biological methods are interesting but are not devoid of counter measures. It’s an arms race between those trying to keep your information secure and those trying get all your gory Facebook dirt that you, yourself uploaded for everyone to see in the first place, LOL. For now, find a good password vault program and make yourself a complicated, but easy to remember sentence for your password as described above for your main password to enter the vault program. Then save all of your websites in the vault program and refer to it when logging into your chosen site. For more “best practices” in safe guarding your online identity and security to your most valued websites – I’m looking at you, social addicts – and of course your finances and every other way a scammer can try and ruin your personal and financial life.
