Passwords, and website security

by | May 1, 2015 | Zoda Design Blog

The most common passwords of 2015 is now available – is your password on this list?

Having a commonly used password is the easiest way to get your accounts hacked. I know everyone says “Oh I just have one I use for everything, it’s too much to remember more than that…” HOWEVER there are several things you can do to better secure your accounts.

I use a service called LastPass. They’re great for everyone who only wants to remember one password, because one password is all you’ll ever need. The best thing about LastPass is that you can use it on your mobile device as well (the desktop/laptop version is free, but the mobile version will set you back a whopping $12/year). Once you sign up for an account and install the browser plugin, all you have to do is log in to your other accounts like normal and LastPass will ask you if you want to save those passwords.

On top of that, LastPass will also help you generate secure passwords for all of your sites, to better minimize the chances of getting hacked. They also offer two-factor authentication for an added level of security (which I definitely recommend). This ensures that even if someone found out your LastPass password, they’d still need the code on your mobile device in order to log in and have access to all your accounts.

Speaking of two-factor authentication, there’s now a plugin for WordPress that offers that ability as well! If you’re interested in setting up two-factor authentication on your WordPress website please feel free to get in touch.
