Change Your Password

Welcome to Change Your Password. This site provides tips and techniques for everyday users in order to get you to change your password frequently! If you have questions not covered in Change Your Password, please feel free to email your question to

I'll be the first to admit that it's not exactly an exciting subject, that is, to change your password. After all, what more can you say except, "change your password?" Actually, entire industries have been borne because people haven't changed their passwords. Think about it. With so many businesses online that require passwords, it's easy to become complacent about how you store your passwords. It's also easy to forget what that password is. And the worst thing you can do is to use the same password for everything you do online. It's like purchasing home surveillance systems and letting the bad guys know where they are, how they were installed, how many times they are updated, and what you need to do to circumvent it.

So, in this short screed - I promise it won't be long - I will point out some of the ins and outs of password security. The more random you are with your passwords, the easier it will be for you in the end. That in itself presents a challenge because we don't want to change our passwords every week; it would drive us crazy!

Love to hear your comments.
