Passwords.  Seems we all have a million different things that require passwords. The following are a few suggestions that will help keep your passwords secure. Use multiple words tied together with a number, capitalizing 1 or 2 letters in the password, and add a special character like @#$%^& (i.e. Peaches2fuZZy#). The longer the password and more words you use, the more secure the password. Preferably it would be best if every password was different, but this is not really realistic. Keeping this in mind though, do not use the same password for your email as you do for your social media sites.  Social media sites are one of the most common ways for hackers to get your password.  Your financial passwords should also be as complex as possible and different from all other passwords.  The reason for this is if a hacker gets your password, they will try it on as many sites as they can.
