I manage a lot of sites – some my own, some for my clients. And the one thing they all have in common is that they require a password to allow me to get in to the administration area.
How can I possibly remember that many passwords, let alone which one goes with which site?
I’ll tell you how.
Too many people don’t use strong passwords because they’re difficult to remember.
Every year, a list comes out of the most commonly used passwords.
If your password is on this list, go and change it.
Change it NOW!!
I hesitate to use my business e-mail for accessing online content, where the value I am getting is an individual item or temporary access.
But many sites will not grant access without a valid e-mail. What to do?
Whether or not you have a website, a company intranet, or just a bunch of client files on your laptop, you’ll want to keep that data secure.
