Dear Abby on Password Secrecy

Today’s Dear Abby contained a letter about passwords. It’s the third letter at this link

The letter writer warns against sharing your passwords with anyone. The writer recounts instances where a password shared at one point in a relationship becomes a weapon when the relationship turns sour. People, after the divorce is finalized you need to make sure your ex doesn’t have your bank passwords.

Didn’t expect to be getting security advice from Dear Abby. If these people had followed the standard security advice to use different passwords for each account and change them regularly that alone would have prevented this breach.

  1. One advantage with Dear Abby is the number of people she reaches and the type of person reached … people that just don’t know or understand the “standard security advice” that should be “common sense” but isn’t. Let’s hope the article reached someone!
