    How big is your haystack?

    How long will it take someone to find your needle(password) in the proverbial haystack?

    It is to teach you about password safety.

    interesting - but can I REALLY believe that what I might put there STAYS there?

    I do admit to being a bit cautious (Paranoid)!

    I'm also afraid if it will really stay there.

    Mine will take
    5.92 hundred million centuries to crack. I think I'm safe.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    If you "think" you are safe, watch out.

    I do know this, as do most of us here. Nothing is safe anymore, it is just the way the world is now.

    I would not trust entering any of my passwords in some random site that says "Trust us, we are safe." No thanks.

    I entered a past password never to be used again. I change my passwords when the month changes. I have different ones for different online functions. I have a system that whatever month it is, it lets me know the password I used. I keep one month behind then two forward with numbers and capitol letters of all the pet names I have had. Some are backwards some are forward in capitols. It's sounds complicated but I can remember it easy. DH and I use the same banking password so he knows the password for the month.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I just had to go through and change all my passwords It cost me $250. to undo the virus/trojan that came through on a link that I either clicked here on QB or FB. The only 2 places I felt were safe. Now I do not click on any links. Thank goodness I have never shopped on line so none of my info is on here for some slime ball to empty my bank acct.And I have notified all my contacts to alert them

    Wow that's really interesting. One of mine is rated for requiring 64+ years using the brute force attack. Now I just need to remember it. One of the members of my senior center computer club wears a thumb drive on a lanyard around his neck just for passwords. He says he has several hundred different ones.(Yes, he also wears a pocket protector ). I'm going to pass this website on to everyone I know. Thanks so much for sharing it. Joyce in Delaware
