Today we are going to discuss password hygiene and no we are not talking about a teenager not using deodorant. We are talking about not making stinky habits when it comes to your passwords. There are 3 big mistakes people make when managing their passwords. Number 1 is using the same password. Don’t use the same password or a simple variation on every website. The second is using a simple password, don’t use Fido, your wife’s name, any variation of the word password, or for the love of god your birthday, so not only can your password get leaked but now your birthday is floating around. The last mistake is where you keep your passwords. Don’t store them under your keyboard or in a file in your desk. Especially do not store them in the super sneaky excel worksheet named “not passwords”. The best way to store and maintain your passwords is to use a password management application that allows you to have complex, different, and securely stored passwords. These applications are cheap, typically less than $50/year.
