Avoid your msn password from being stolen

If you have msn and you are worried about someone stealing your password, do the following things: >Don't give out your alternate email or its password >Don't give out your hotmail password (Duh) >Try not to let too many people know that you have a hotmail account >NEVER tick remember me on this computer when signing in >NEVER tick remember my password EVER (that's how most passwords get stolen) If you do happen to have your password stolen, send the hotmail administration email requesting your password.

a strong password is needed if you want to be safe. mix some random letters / nums / symbols. brute force utilities (application that tries automatically series of easy to guess passwords) are very powerless against good randomized password i keep my passwords in txt files on my box. unless some1 breaks into it i should be safe. i run linux without any deamons open to the world and dont execute random stuff from the inet

yeah, I mixed loads of non-alphamunerical characters into my password, and yet it still cracked it
did it ? some1 might just pick it up somewhere from cookies or keylogger

Yeah, that Depends on whether they have access to your computer and account

You don't have to worry about the remember this password too much - as long as its your own computer, and as long as you have a strong log in password.

It also helps to use a more secure OS, like Linux, or Leopard.

(all good OS's begin with L)
So Snow Leopard is going to suck? :-P
The L rule only applies to the current state.. snow leopard is gonna be good, but evolutionary, instead of revolutionary.
I'm going to see what it turns out like, then make the leap when i have the money.
Snow Leopard? :O
That's the new version of OSX :D
