Just got this email from LinkedIn and immediately changed my password. I don’t really have any sensitive information on LinkedIn but this is a good reminder that even a good password and reputable website are not enough to keep your information private.

I use a program called 1Password to generate super strong passwords. This program also allows me to store login information and make it accessible from all of my devices which allows me to use very long passwords without having to remember them or enter them in manually.

The Takeaway:

  1. Try not to store sensitive information online. If a hacker wants it bad enough – they will find a way.
  2. Use a password generator and use passwords that are over 10 characters
