Avoid your msn password from being stolen Answered

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

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)

The L rule only applies to the current state.. snow leopard is gonna be good, but evolutionary, instead of revolutionary.

I had the strongest Password ever and the program that I used (for free) Took two seconds. The password was *-+x5&*-+x5&

Thats not very strong actually.. the fact that its repeated means that it only had to crack the first half.. you have too many symbols..

a secure pass word is more like this..
