Terrible Passwords

Password/username combos are a painful but unavoidable aspect of internet life. Your WordPress website dashboard is yet another login to remember, so what’s the best way to go about it? Lots of people pick a password that is simple to remember, and use it for everything. I did this until I realised that if my password was somehow compromised, a hacker could locate other accounts belonging to me and gain access to any of them.

Password guessing is a big security concern. If you use a dictionary word, a pet’s name or anything a computer might find guessable, you are at risk. Ideally, a password will contain a long string of mixed characters, numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters – AND – you’ll have a different unique password for every website you log onto.

So what’s the solution?

LastPass is a browser plugin that generates and remembers login details for all your sites. You need to remember one password only – log in to LastPass and let it do the work.
