It seems like every site you visit requires a user name and password. If the website accesses private information, like financial information, email, etc., you should safeguard your information with a strong password.
How to create a strong password:
Never share your password and always change it after using a nonsecure
network (i.e. free Wi-Fi in an airport, hotel, coffee shop, etc.). Never write down your passwords and leave them by your computer, under your mouse pad or tucked into your planner. There are password keeper sites that will remember your passwords for you.
Check out sites like: http://keepass.com, www.roboform.com, http://lastpass.com, and http://splashdata.com. If you decide to use one of these sites to keep all your passwords – make sure the password to get into that site is exceptionally strong!
