Talking Your Very Important Word

How many of you have a password that noone would guess? What about one that isn't so hard to figure out? I believe that it is very important that everybody keep their password a secret. If someone gets into your account, there's no telling what could happen. The ONLY reason that I would give one person my password is if I know that I might need someone to cover for a help question asked. In the event of this happening, I suggest that you ask a person you know VERY VERY WELL, that you know would not do anything to your account to damage it. Just a small safety reminder.

Talking What do you think?

What does everyone think about this? Do you believe this is correct information?

Default Keeping passwords secret

Dear Minnie

You are so correct! It is imperative that we all keep our passwords secret. Imagine if someone who has your password logs in and posts vulgar /defamatory comments? That could land YOU in very hot soup, as we would have to assume that it was YOU who did it. It would be really difficult to prove that the person who made the bad comments was someone else, simply because no one else is supposed to have your password.

So do keep your password extremely confidentialy, and change it from time to time just in case it gets leaked out. Now, if you really have to give it to a trusted friend (and do make sure your friend is indeed trusted) you should change it as soon as you get a change to do so (without telling your friend your new password, of course).

Thanks for bringing up this issue and reminding us

Talking I have a question..

Should I move this post to another place, so that all users have access to it?

Default Sharing the information

Yes, that's an excellent idea!

I tell you what....I will create new forum called "Administrative Matters". Once it's done, I'll message you so you can move this thread there.

As well as not telling any one one's password, one should have a password that is difficult to guess.

Default So true

I have to agree. That happened to me once, but I changed my password and found out who did it. Another thing, make sure your password IS NOT "PASSWORD"!!!!!! Also, try to keep it something that doesn't have to do with your username.

I completely agree. My password is so hard for all my friends to guess, and i use it on all my accounts. And just to be safe, I don't even gie my friends hints about my password. Even more so,
I type fast, so even if they did try to spy, they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the keys!

Talking Passwords

If the point of a password is to be a secret word that allows you to access things that you don't want other people geeting into, than why do people share it? That is what I want to know!
