Ever since the technology has advanced, the security of a site has become more vulnerable to hacking. Every user, visitor and website owner look for the ways to make their online presence secure and safe. We all use passwords for our social networking accounts, banking accounts and might have created numerous accounts on a number of sites. How many times do we change the password or use the different ones? Many of us practice keeping the password carelessly. It may result in serious threat to our online presence and sometimes, online identity. We can explain it by taking into account following scenario.
Keeping simple and reused passwords
Let’s assume that there are two people with different habits of keeping the password. One person uses the same password for all his accounts including Facebook, Gmail and Banking. He owns a number of WordPress domains on which he uses his reused passwords. Even if, he buys a new domain, he keeps the same password or the one from his existing passwords. He keeps the password same so that he can easily remember it every time he logs into any of his accounts.
On the other hand, another person keeps the unique and secure passwords for all the accounts which he has created in the web world so far. He created his Facebook account, Gmail, Forums and WordPress websites with different passwords always. He uses a password manager to keep his information about the password for his newly owned WordPress account.
Some people may think that it is alright to keep same passwords because they may not encounter the issue. This is because; they may not be aware of the following scenario which may happen to them at any moment.
Threats from hackers
Now, let’s see it from the hackers point of view. They are always in search of the accounts which can easily be accessed. They will be able to find it difficult to access the accounts of a person who use different passwords for all his accounts. His information on WordPress and other accounts is safe. He does not have to worry about his online presence.
On the other hand, the person who has same password for his accounts can lose his valuable information. The hackers can access his Facebook account and other social media accounts to grab the personal details about him such as his mother’s maiden name, anniversary date, birthday, friends, spouse information and other vital information. Now, they can get in touch with the WordPress admin and change the password. They can even verify the information because they have all the details about him. It is easier for them to take over his WordPress network. They can perform illegal activities once they have accessed this network.
