Why you need to fire your SEO company

If you use your birthday, anniversary, automobile license number or even any word found in the dictionary followed by sequential numbers, the answer to the above is, "Not very secure at all."

As a website design & development company we know that passwords like "Password" and 1234 can be hacked faster than they can be typed. Choose a password with the name of your favorite car and sequential numbers, say "Mustang1234" and it could take 30 seconds to crack.

Of course, this is why naked photos of celebrities get stolen, websites get jumbled into a mess and your Facebook account urges your friends to buy Viagra at a steep discount.

It's also why every geek and techie website design and development guru urges users to crate passwords that include upper case and lower case letters, numbers and symbols and they all should be in non sequential order. Oh...and never keep any of these passwords on a sticky note or anywhere else you might be able to find it. Yeah... Right.

Because we are a website design & development company we have hundreds of passwords to maintain.

Most individuals have at least a dozen or more places that require a password to login. Unfortunately many people have one really lousy password that covers all of them. If you have a business website, you could be placing all of your data and much of your business in jeopardy.

Don't believe us? Go to "How secure is my password" Type it in and see just how secure your password actually is. I typed in "Camaro 8" and learned that at 4 billion calculations per second it would take the average PC 19 seconds to do the 78 billion calculations it would take to crack my Camaro8 password like an egg. Type in a non sequential password with upper and lower case letters, (without making it a word) that also has numbers and symbol--say aK9L3@(uT@Bz--and it would take the average PC 344 thousand years to hack it.

But, good luck trying to remember a set of highly random, very unique passwords for all your online logins. Fortunately, there is a way to put an end to passwords that are easy to hack. Password managers such as Roboform manage your passwords for you. With Roboform downloaded, you simply create strong passwords for all your sites. You also create a strong master password. Then Roboform remembers all of the password logins and all you have to do is use the one master password. As a website design & development company we have to use a password management service to keep all of our passwords secure. Everyone should do it.
