If you’re anything like me, remembering passwords can be a real challenge. The temptation is always there to just use the same one, or a slight variation, everywhere. Or worse yet, let your web browser remember them all. (Hint: they can easily be hacked if someone gets hold of your computer, and easily lost if you have to reinstall things.) There’s no perfect solution, but some are better than others.
I got call today from a friend. “I have a question about my website. You remember that guy I was dating a while back? he set up my website for me, but then we broke up and now …” I could predict the rest of the conversation like I was reading a script. It’s a lesson that many people learn the hard way. Do yourself a favor. Read this and learn it the easy way.
