SEXY PASSWORDS


Wasn't I just talking about passwords the other day?  Now I'm doubly glad I have 1Password.  It was easy to open up the program and change my password.  And since now I have different passwords for every website I use, I didn't have to change more than that one.  A bit of peace of mind.

Also, I did figure out how to use 1Password on my iPhone.  Which is a big help since I play with my iPhone when eating out alone.  Kinda like bringing a book or the newspaper.  Because I do always have a book going on Kindle and a magazine on Zinio.

If these evil doers would put their intellect and ambition towards doing something productive, they would all be millionaires.  Why are some people so stinking mean?  One of my condo neighbors had her Yahoo email account hacked which then sent emails to many of her friends asking for money to get her and her husband out of Istanbul where they were doing missionary work.  Believe it or not, these two ARE very religious and most of us could picture them doing missionary work.

Another neighbor sent $$$ (a lot) via Western Union to help them get home.  Without checking to see that they were safe and sound at their own condo.  Then he came by their place a week or two after to ask for his money to be repaid.

Awkward.  Another reminder to do some homework BEFORE falling for a scheme.

  1. Is the !Password a program you buy or a service you pay a yearly fee on? Is your one password stored in a cloud? My lawyer wants me to get a password minder, but I'm stubborn about things I don't understand. Since clouds are now hackable I'm wonder how secure is it to have just the one password for everything.

  2. I'm still thinking about 1Password. Having only one password is a very attractive proposition.

    I had an old email account (that I haven't used and should have deleted long ago) that sent an email to a lot of people in my address book. I will not make that mistake again. Delete them if you're not using them.

    Passwords drive me crazy!

    1. And I just learned to surf the internet with an incognito search ... so ads regarding items you were searching do not show up on every other program you use ... Google, Facebook, Amazon ...

  3. If the first address on your e-mail address list is: 0000-00000-0000, no hacker can send any bad e-mails to your friends. That number stops them dead!
