What are your passwords?

Postby Oprah » Mon Dec 10, 2007 8:49 pm

They were fun at first, but now 657190q, h76p98, and 5400lu2 are getting a tad droll. Any ideas for some new passwords?

Paco once told me, he had the same password for everything. Anyone else do that?

I hate sbcglobal.net so bad, I never use it.

I do to some extent for things on the internet. For all forum type of websites I use the same password. I've been using that password for about 10 years.

For anything that involves financial transactions, I use a different password. While they say it's a poor practice to use the same password, I know the likelihood of anything bad happening to me due to a breach is nil. My password is essentially a random string of characters with upper and lower case, numbers and symbols. The only plausible way my password would be compromised is if someone gained access to a websites database storing my password and the password data was stored in plain text (poor security practice) or if someone with authorized access to the database stole my password. Even so, they'd be limited to accessing my account on that website only because I use different usernames for every website and my financial password is different than my email password.

If you learn anything, know this. Your email password is sacred and should be guarded at all times. Someone does not need to crack your Amazon account if they can get into your email. They simply check your email, find out what websites you have accounts with and then go through the "lost password" steps at those websites. The new passwords are sent to your email account and they intercept them.

I really hate websites that store credit card information for "speedy checkout". Amazon had a practice of doing that. I'm not sure if they still do that. I sent them an email about that and I haven't done business with them in awhile. The iTunes Store keeps your credit card information on file, which is why I've never used their service.

The only people who could ever figure it out are too busy playing Raze's Hell.

anyone who truly knows me could easily figure out my password.

however, then you have to get close enough to realize I have nothing of value.

Helpful to know an obscure foreign language (except if others know you do & think to look up your favorite food on some instructional site)

That sound you just heard was hundreds of Forons changing their password.

I think it was tForum or whatever it is we used to use. I've suppressed a lot of those memories.

That is not a good idea.
