Apparently some Russian hackers released over 6 million LinkedIn passwords this week. I saw this article on CNN Money [ http://money.cnn.com/2012/06/06/technology/linkedin-password-hack/index.htm?hpt=hp_c1 ] and immediately went in and changed mine – better safe than someone messing with your account!
SO… my advice to you today: CHANGE YOUR LinkedIn password.
Further password advice – don’t have the same password or 2 passwords for every site.
I highly recommend 1Password – it encrypts passwords so they make no sense and you can sync them to your iPhone, iPad, whatever. 1Password is available for Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, and Android. It might take a little longer than typing your niece or nephews name but the security you get is worth it.
So much of our businesses, lives and connections are now online. Manage your passwords and change them from time to time.
Here’s to your creative success –
