Your password – change it

I get a number of reports that there are attempts to login to email accounts. Those are most likely bots that try to guess your email password. If you’re stuck in the 80s or 90s then this means that your password is literally just a single word with at least 8 characters.

Time to change it. Seriously.

Change it from a password to a passphrase — the one that’s stuck in your head since December last year. Or invent one that you know you’ll never forget. Make your phrase at least 17 characters in your own language or dialect. Just be sure you won’t forget it.

Too many passphrases to remember? Use a password manager that works for you.  lifehacker has a recently updated list of their top 5 password managers. Pick your poison.
