Password Pointers

So many websites want you to enter a password. It's best to use different passwords for different websites, but how do you know if your password is good enough and how do you keep track?

If the website does not store any of your sensitive personal information, you can probably get away with a simple password that you use for all such websites. Try to be a bit more creative than using your birth date, phone number or the name of your pet.

For websites such as PayPal, credit cards, or your bank, you will want a more secure password. These sites often ask that you change the password to keep it more secure. A mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols is best.

How do you remember it all? Write it down, either on paper or in a text file on your computer. Name the text file something innocent, like "poundcake_recipe", and/or password protect the file. Enter each password backwards, or substitute uppercase for lowercase, or add numbers. Just remember what you have done so you can properly "decode" the passwords when you need them. This will keep anyone else from being able to use your passwords if they find your list.

If you are in a public place (the airport or an Internet cafe), be very careful about visiting websites that use passwords. You never know who might be looking over your shoulder. If using a public computer (at the library or at work), be sure to log out or close the web browser before leaving the computer.
