Semi-Colons in Passwords

Monday, June 1st, 2009 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Without a single doubt, security is the most important thing to keep in mind when using the Internet. Browse only safe sites, be careful what you download, avoid the yellow snow! It’s a virtual minefield out there, so I’m going to take the work out of one of the most vulnerable parts of Internet safety. The password.

We’re told, that as safe Internet browsers, we are to change our password occasionally to keep the hackers guessing. Well, it does a fine job at keeping me guessing, I’ll tell you that much! How may sites do you have separate passwords for? Just Try to remember all of those, plus remember to change them on a regular basis!

Here’s a tip: Try incorporating a semi-colon into your existing passwords. It’s easy to remember because it’s in a prominent place on the keyboard, and it allows you to keep what you already have with a little spice added to it! You can put a semi-colon at the beginning, end, or if you’re feeling super-secure, in the middle. Heck, some sites require punctuation in their passwords, so you’re killing two birds with one stone! You can remember easily and you’re secure! Neat!
