    EVER!!! And goddamnit use 2-factor auth anywhere you possibly can! I will never stop preaching this because I'm here to help my dawgs brothers and sisters. Again - I point you you lastpass or another password manager of your choice and Google authenticator or authy for 2-factor codes. All the people that used the same password for LinkedIn and teamviewer fucked themselves with a raw rubber dildo in the ass. No lube. No excuses. Fix your bad security habits right nao!!!!!

    LastPass is the best. Free for one computer or 12 bucks a year for all your devices to have seamless integration.

    Mosteoporosis of my passwords are something crazy like 32 characters long, but I never have to bother remembering any of em.

    Thank you. Many people are quick to blame the website/service when their accounts are "hacked" when in reality it was because they use the same email/password combo everywhere. An older, insecure service might be vulnerable, and a breach may occur... If you use the same login everywhere you are fucked. That's all these fraudsters do. They gain your login and try it everywhere on the net; PayPal, ps network, banks, iTunes, etc, until they get a hit, and then it's potentially game over.

    Honest to baby Jesus it's the best $12 you can spend online. The key to lastpass is it's trust no-one (TNO) security. Everything is encrypted on your device before anything is synced to other devices. They have 0.0% of anything on their servers that someone could hack (until d-wave finishes the quantum computer. then everyone is fucked)

    My main man Steve Gibson explains it best if you want to know more.

    Which of the following two passwords is stronger,
    more secure, and more difficult to crack?

    D0g.....................

    PrXyc.N(n4k77#L!eVdAfp9

    You probably know this is a trick question, but the answer is: Despite the fact that the first password is HUGELY easier to use and more memorable, it is also the stronger of the two! In fact, since it is one character longer and contains uppercase, lowercase, a number and special characters, that first password would take an attacker approximately95 times longer to find by searching than the second impossible-to-remember-or-type password!

    A brute force attack on that password assuming one hundred trillion guesses per second would take 11.52 thousand trillion centuries to crack.

    And if you ever sign up for a website and try to use that password and they say it can't have those special characters, go running the opposite direction as it's a red flag that their encryption scheme is shit.

    Take only the first six characters of that same password (&G$VmP) and the time drops to 0.00382 seconds. LENGTH MATTERS!!!!
