Keeping your personal passwords private, secure, and unbreakable is one of the most important steps you can take for safer computing. If your passwords slip into the wrong hands, your identity, finances, and personal information could be in jeopardy.
Using passwords are important steps in ensuring privacy and security on the computers you use everyday, at home and at work. Unfortunately, many of the passwords people use are simple or have been in use for a long period of time and for a lot of accounts. Simple passwords can be easily guessed by people who know you, or can readily be cracked by people with experience.
