Don’t use the same password for all Websites

With the numerous websites that require passwords, it is tempting to use the same password, don’t. An editor for wired magazine recently had his account compromised, once the hacker figure out his password, he was able to attack additional accounts. What I recommend is to have different passwords that are strong for banking, brokerage and ecommerce sites. For social media sites have another password that you are changing at least every 90 days. Finally for sites you don’t care that much about have another password. Linkedin was compromised this year and the hackers put the passwords out for anyone to find, if you used the same password, you could have been easily compromised.
