Online safety is just as important as your personal safety, as they will merge together eventually and wreak havoc on your psychological life, I know it freaks me out to think of someone getting into my stuff. Worry can overcome our daily routines and keep us from enjoying our life.
So when I was alerted that my Linkedin account could have possibly have been compromised it upset my "psychie", I changed my password immediately as all is well with the leaky world for this moment in the continum of the internet. Darn hacking spammer zombies!
Now, let’s review best password practices, shall we?
The easiest trick of course is to include the following in your passwords:
• a capital letter
• a symbol
• be eight characters long or more
It’s also considered smart policy to NOT use any words in your password. LinkedIn offers some great tips in their blog post about the security breach.
So go now and change that password, chase away the zombies while you are at it!
