Analyze Passwords

Figure 1.6 - The longer the password, the safer it is from brute-force attacks

The downside to having longer passwords with more different characters is that they are more difficult to remember.  A password that is not easily remembered will probably be written down and stored near the computer.  A hacker then only needs to snoop around the workstation to find the note, and eureka, they have access.

The keys to selecting safe passwords are as follows:

  • Use letters and numbers.

  • Use at least seven or eight characters.

  • Do not use a dictionary word or combination word.

  • Never write them down!

  • Change them regularly.

Forget Logins

Most on-line account log-in routines will provide the user with the option of having the system remember their password.  This results in the user not having to enter their password the next time they log into the account.  As illustrated below, these password memory features can be configured to user preferences.
