1. Great reminders about how to use passwords. I inherited an expensive briefcase years ago. It had 3 separate 3 digit “passwords.” I spent some money to get into it – a locksmith. Sorry I hadn’t tried 123, 456 and 789. So this isn’t a new problem.

  2. I have my passwords on a schedule to change them so I don’t forget. Some are manual and some with reminders. Every site I have has a different password. Yeah, it makes me crazy, but if you have been hacked as I have in the past, it’s well worth the effort. Great post!

  3. Ha! #MulletheadRod!, eh? Is it OK for me to use that one? I hear you re “don’t write down your passwords.” Seriously? When I was at the chamber of commerce, I had 42. 42 passwords! And you’re supposed to keep them all in your head, and associated with the right accounts? I don’t think so. There is one good way to keep your passwords secure; put them in a file on a secure site online. And then hope and pray you continue to have Internet access. Good one, Kristen, thanks for sharing.

    • Yes Jackie, you can us that pw, I won’t tell! lol Yea, well I do actually write mine down, in a spreadsheet that is pw protected but yes, I can understand the difficulty when having so many for EVERYTHING we do! Crazy huh? Thanks!

  4. Thanks for the tips, it’s good to know. I find it so hard to understand why people have to mess with everything and hack everything, ok but it’s done. At least it’s good to know that there are some ways to protect our sites. I will check if my plug ins are updated right now 🙂

  5. Point well taken! The real website of Wordfence was so convincing! I went and added the protection like you! Yes, WordPress is under attack and we much be protected. I have a password software that tells me things, and now I will pay closer attention to it! Better safe than sorry!

  6. When it comes to security and passwords, one of the biggest things on my end is making sure any passwords are long and unique. More importantly though is having a system for how to keep track of them 🙂

  7. great, all day I’ll be thinking about a monkey named #mulletheadrod . My password is a word most people never think to use and then a number that’s meaningful to me. but I change it from time to time. great post!

  8. Hi Kristin,

    What a great article! I love humorous articles. I change my password quite often and if I don’t write it down somewhere I forget what I’ve changed it to. great tips!
