Steph Alexandra's curator insight, August 25, 2014 1:03 AM

This article outlines the Dos and Don'ts of managing passwords for your accounts. There is one website that will automatically encrypt a password to all of your accounts, however will only require you to sign in to each using the one (and difficult for others). 

The article also explains that listing your birthday via your social channels is not a good idea, as it can be looked up on google, as well as searching for your pet's name, the school you went to etc. This is how hackers are easily able to access your information.

 

I found this article to be to-the-point and rather usefully. It was not confronting, and I dare say it would scare those off who are taking their first steps into online profiling.
