Hijacking: Why you should keep your password safe!!
 
Hello there!! BroadwayBaby here, your FLP leader!! We recently had a situation where someones account was hijacked. No need to be alarmed, hijacking is when someone who is not the user logs on to there username and posts strange messages. This strange occurance can be prevented if you do certain procedures. First, always remember to log off your username if you are posting in a public place. Second, be sure to tell no one your password, except, be sure to tell your parental units your passwords, so if something should go wrong, they would have acsess to your accounts. Then, change your passwords often, and be sure to change them to something inconspicuas. (unguessable) The last thing you can do is keep your eyes peeled for strange activity, and if found, report it to a responsible adult so they can assist you with the problem. If you follow these instructions, your account will be virtually hi-jacker proof!! Thank you and HAPPY LEARNING! - BroadwayBaby!:)

Yeah. Everyone needs to remember that the world isn't always Mickey Mouse and Care Bear happiness. There are cruel people who will do anything to ruin anything. Change your password routinally, and don't log on in public!

Trustworthy
 
You need to know who are your friends and who are the enemy. Don't let no one have your password because not everyone will be so nice as to keep it to themselves. Don't have a password someone can figure out in a instant! Be sure to log out before you leave the room.:)

P.S. Make sure your password isn't "12345...."
