Forget Everything They’ve Told You About Passwords!
Until now, you’ve been told to create complicated passwords virtually impossible to remember sort of like nuttybutty translated as something like N2t!yBuyyt#!.

Don’t Look Now, But You’ve Probably Been Hacked
Between all the recent ginormus hacks and particularly those of Yahoo and Equifax – it’s pretty likely you’ve been hacked. And — if not yet, soon. Until internet security stands up to hackers intent on stealing your stuff, consider your stuff at risk.
Yahoo recently admitted that not some, but all of its 3-plus billion (yes, that’s billion) user accounts were breached.
Equifax now admits that in addition to the 143 million hacked accounts there are an additional 2.5 million. There will likely be legal consequences for Equifax, (its president jumped ship with an 18 million retirement package). You, on the other hand, could lose everything, because now (if you were hacked) your Social Security ID is out there.
At the very least, make absolutely sure that bank, stock, savings accounts and the like have strong new passwords and protocols for each account such as 2-step authentication, simple words strung together and/or you use a trusted password manager.
