Paranoid About Passwords ???

Do you control your passwords or do your passwords control you .... ? That's a tricky one ......

I just had a strange feeling about this at work today ...... Nope ! I was not trying to beat those Monday Blues ........
I think these passwords are like toothbrush ....... Never to be used by someone else than you ..... I am sure they need to be changed once every 6 months .........

But I am sure there are many of us who are paranoid of passwords ...... Especially guys trying to hide stuff from the opposite sex ...... Hmmmmm maybe even vice versa ...... What say people ??

hha..
thats true.. but if u plan to share ur password. create a new email id and share it with your best friend...

but never share ur password of your personal mail.. not even with your life partner

i prefer not changing my pwds for yrs actually.. coz i have a tendency to forget them since I dont login that often. Also when I change it, and login after a long time, I end up scratching my head like an ass! :|

the last two lines are veeerrryyy cheeky! :D

I think I am the worst victim of this problem..I hv this weird feeling whenever I type my password tht someone somewhr hs somehow got access to my password while i was typing it, and it is going to misue my email account...but unfortunately, it has never happened (unfortumately because it makes me realise that i am still not famous enough to inspire miscreants to do such things)..poor me !

@Solilo : Good catch ..... ;-)

Since you are talking about password, I hate one of our online banks because we have to reset the password every one... for me its kinda ridiculous...

thanks for the visit and comments

Now did someone bust your passwords?


I prefer having really wacky passwords that people are ashamed to even think about

I have the same password for all my accounts since I was 14 or 15!!

I don't really care about hiding stuff... but why'd I want to reveal anything either!! Smart eh!!

See you when I see you... :)

P.S. It took me so long to realize I wasn't following you!! Better late than never!! :D
