Passwords, passwords, passwords! Plus Amazon!

Sam News, Show Archives, Topics

First off, if you need help with making a password? Jonathan’s Patent Pending Password Algorithm™ is here to help! Take a phrase that you say a lot like “May The Force Be With You” or “The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dog.” Take the first letter off of each word, and only capitalize the first letter. So, Mtfbwy or Tqbfjotld. Add your favorite number at the end, then an exclamation point or something else. Mtfbwy1! or Tqbfjotld9!. Split it in half, and put in the initials for whatever you’re contacting in between. So, for Bank of Hawaii? You could use MtfBOHbwy1 or TqbfBOHjotld9. Using this formula, you’ll have the same password for every site you go to, but have a unique password for every site! Next, if you shop on Amazon, they have enabled a new security feature! Two-Factor Authentication means the bad guys need more than just your password to do bad stuff with your account! In addition to your password, Amazon will make use of your cell phone by either texting you a security code or letting you use an authenticator app. Want to set it up? PC World has an easy article on how to do it. http://www.pcworld.com/article/3006262/security/how-to-protect-your-amazon-account-with-two-factor-authentication.html
