Last time, we spoke about password security, we went over the importance of using strong passwords to avoid identity theft. In part two, we will discuss three easy password solutions that can help you manage all of your different passwords.
For sites you need to log into often, having your browser remember your password can save you time logging in, especially if you are using secure passwords that you might need to look up otherwise. There are circumstances where you might want to manage what personal information gets stored in your web browser.
LinkedIn, the popular social network geared towards business networking and communication, has reported a major breach in security. A file containing over six million passwords was leaked and posted on the Internet.What does this mean for you, and what course of action should you take?
The problem with carrying around an expensive, portable piece of equipment is that it's possible for someone to pick it up and run with it.

This has been a pretty common topic for us on the Manage My IT blog.
