The internet has been abuzz recently with the news of hacked servers, stolen passwords and security scares. We’re constantly reminded that our ‘stuff’ on the internet isn’t as secure, or as safe, as perhaps we’d like it to be and that the best way to keep it secure is to have a super strong password.
