What’s Your Password?


You wouldn’t just hand over the keys to your home or car to a stranger, yet some people are more than happy to hand over the keys to their online world.

How easy is it to steal someone’s password? Is it really stealing if they just give it to you? But who would hand over their password?

Apparently there are lots of people who are happy to be hacked and will gladly broadcast their passwords around the world. Check out this video from Jimmy Kimmel Live and see how easy it is to grab a few passwords.

I could ask you to give me your passwords in the comment section of this post but I’m sure you won’t fall for that, but do you have ways to keep your passwords secure?

I’ve been using LastPass for a while. It’s a password manager which makes web browsing more secure. It not only helps me build strong passwords but it keeps track of them all.

  • Amazingly easy to talk information out of people isn’t it? And we put even more out one facebook and in our blogs, don’t we?

    • You’re so right. We certainly put a lot out their on blogs and social media. Some people have told me that they know everything about me because of what they read online. What they don’t know is how much I hold back in order to maintain privacy for my family and myself. 🙂
