    Protecting Your Passwords


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The hacking of Governor Sarah Palinís e-mail address could easily have been avoided. Are your accounts just as insecure as hers? Could you be next? Not if you follow a few simple steps, and learn more about protecting your passwords.

    Identity theft has always been a possibility, though perhaps it seems more sinister in today's modern world. Once upon a time, it was an easy affair to claim to be someone else; all you had to know, really, was a name.

    Today, identify thieves are much more sophisticated because the system is; they still manage to circumvent it. When any part of your identity is stolen, whether it's your bank account, your credit card or even your e-mail address, you become a victim. Protecting your passwords is one way to help prevent that sad scenario from becoming a reality. Keep reading to find out how.

    Account Creation

    Whether you're signing up for a free email account, trying to receive a regular online newsletter or even just attempting to make a purchase through Amazon.com, you'll be asked to register an account through many different Web sites for many different reasons. Should someone other than you gain access to one of these accounts, you could face more serious issues than missing your weekly e-zine delivery.

    Suppose someone manages to get into your private e-mail, your PayPal account, even your Amazon.com shopping cart -- what could happen next? Remember, some sites keep your credit card and bank information on file; all you need to use to make a purchase is your password.

    Are you protecting your passwords, or do you have security holes which could turn into potential Internet land mines?
