Did You Miss World Password Day?
In case you have this lingering notion in your mind that you have forgotten something this morning...maybe you did. Yesterday was World Password Day.
Yep, I missed it as well.
Intel created World Password Day — the first Thursday of May — to address the critical need for solid passwords.
Ridiculous? Not really...think of everything you use passwords or passcodes for. Your computer, bank account, I could even enter the radio station or do my show without my passcodes, and they are getting more sophisticated all the time.
How do you create and remember a password?
It’s simple, really. Most operating systems offer an easy way to create and store passwords. Apple’s “Keychain Access” is one example. You can also go online to generate passwordswhich are practically hacker-proof.
Better to be safe in today's online world. Your cat's name with an asterisk is no longer sufficient.
