Microsoft on the Cutting Edge.
I recommend once a month. Don’t be fooled by ISPs claiming they have a 100 % secure network. Their networks are secure to protect them, not the consumer. Yes, there is some security there for the consumer, but, I wouldn’t entrust them to keep my family safe. OK, this is not an blog to knock ISPs, no, this is just to help protect you, the consumer.
The longer the password the better. I know, my wife hates long passwords, but guess what, so do hackers. When you change your password often, you are always about 2 steps ahead of them. Hackers make a living at trying to decode your password accounts. And they are very good at it.
My wife and I bought a new HP Laptop for Mom, with Windows 8 OS installed, and let me tell you, the be-rage of security fail safes are laborious to say the least. However, that’s a good thing. Let me give a plug to Microsoft for taking internet security very seriously.
For all you old school, let me tell you NET SECURITY is the future. We are not going back to prior more simple days, nor are we going to see any easier protecting our privacy, our chattel, and our money. Here is a link to a safer more secure password approach. http://thefw.com/secure-password-tips/
FOLKS, PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY. I found out the hard-way how hacking threats are very real, and protecting our selves so that they won’t hack into our private life is imperative. Changing passwords is the same as any other security measures we take in our lives, i.e. keys for our cars and house. It’s a necessary evil.
Technology is lightening fast. The ink is barely dry on Windows 8, and already talk about Windows 10, wow. My first Apple computer, back in the day, was the most amazing piece of technology, along with the remote control for the new cable tv, that’s right boys and girls there was life b4 remote cable tv.
It seems like yesterday sometimes. Of course, then came Windows 98, the creme de la creme. I can still hear “PLAY BALL” Still my favorite OS.
Windows 98, really, in hind sight, was just the tip of the ice berg of what was to come. My world of slow paced, manual operations, mind calculating formulas, are long gone.
