How To Create a Strong Account Password

by FIA on August 8, 2011

Over the past few days, there have been rumors going around the internet saying that “hackers” are targeting the accounts of players who have posted their Pottermore user names online.  The truth is, just like with any other online account, as long as your account has a good password, there is no reason for you to not share your user name online.

In this day and age, all of us deal with passwords every day of our lives.  From our gaming accounts, to our e-mail accounts, to our bank accounts, and beyond.  While most of us typically give little thought to our passwords, the fact is that creating a strong password is the single most important thing we can do to protect our online accounts.

Do you know if the passwords you use are strong enough?  The folks over at Microsoft have created a “Password Checker” that will take a look at your password and tell you if it is “weak”, “medium”, “strong”, or “best”.  Please visit THIS PAGE to check it out.

Did your password fail the test, or did it not get ranked as highly as you would like?  THIS ARTICLE on the Microsoft site should be able to help you out.  The article, called Create Strong Passwords, carefully explains what makes a password strong and gives you tips on how you can make one for yourself.

If something is important to you, it’s worth creating a good password to keep it safe.

Thanks for sharing these links! :)

I actually just noticed today on the Pottermore website that the “Sign In” button at the top is no longer there. Perhaps this is their way of trying to secure the already existing accounts for the time being?

However, some special series of shoes due to some “Scalpers” malicious speculation, we really need to spend a lot higher than the original price to start with. Because there are more and more frequent use of brand marketing means hunger, stop publishing the so-called limited edition, engraved shoes, a lot of people really beginning to love, need more and more to buy the same model, the same series of shoes , resulting in price speculation has become increasingly serious. But the macro point of view the whole issue price of shoes, small or that the overall price is relatively cheap. If we do not blindly follow the trend, and not driven by some petty, but simply because of the love of shoes and go pick their own favorite shoes later, the situation would not be so price speculation increasingly serious.
