Your financial goals may be defeated if hackers get a hint of your passwords for online transactions. So I’m going to reveal to you simple but dedicated steps you can adopt to stop hackers for hacking your passwords be it Facebook, bank details, yahoo, Google, amazon etc
How Hackers Steal Passwords:
Password hackers usually don’t take some easy ways in getting your passwords. They don’t guess (at least 96% of the time). What they do is to get storage of your passwords logged on your computer. Experienced password hackers do not just go to your login page and guess passwords. Nope! They use hacking software to do their stuff. Example of such is Meterpreter. Password hackers shoot for vulnerable computers and steal passwords encrypted and stored as hash on the system.
How to protect yourself from Password Hackers:
Never use Short Passwords:
Never use short passwords for your accounts. The longer the passwords, the more difficult it is for password hackers to steal your passwords
Don’t use just Words
Never use just words for your passwords. Include some numbers and other characters available for use.
At least capitalise a word
It may not necessarily be the first word or the last. Try including it in the middle.
Don’t use just numbers
The options for numbers available are 1 to 0. So just imagine yourself being that limited; the password hackers love this scenario a lot and they take advantage of it.
Change your passwords often
At least for a period of 30 days or less, it is advised by experts to do so.
Different Passwords for Different Accounts
Once one of your accounts is hacked, the password hackers try same password on your different accounts if they are privy to such info
I have been hacked once. When Liberty Reserve was sill operative, one of my accounts was hacked. My Facebook account too was hacked but for the verification system of Facebook, I would have had another Facebook account by now.
So go achieve those financial goals of your today!!!
