Now, Secure Logins at Appliantology!

2 posts in this topic

Appliantology.org stands alone and once again leads the pack as the ONLY appliance repair forum on the internet that has secure logins.  You watch:  all the other copy cats will start copying Appliantology just like they always have.  Once again, Appliantology sets the trend!

 

In light of the recent heartbleed virus and all the security hubbub, Appliantology.org now has secure log ins.  The log-in page is now done via https instead of http so the password you enter is encrypted and can't be snooped by anyone (except the NSA).  

 

Internet security is back in the limelight after the heartbleed virus outbreak.  They're saying even log in pages to sites like this one should be secure because the passwords people use here are probably used at lots of different sites.  

 

BTW, you should change your passwords for all sites that were affected by the heartbleed virus that has plagued sites using the OpenSSL certificates for secure (https) log in pages.  Fun facts to know and tell:  Gmail was one of them; Amazon was not.

Good passwords should reflect several things see http://www.microsoft.com/business/en-us/resources/technology/security/5-tips-for-top-notch-password-security.aspx?fbid=UjJmkzwlh-7

 

Use a combination of numbers and letters and symbols if you can

 

Never use a birthdate or family member name

 

Never use a word that can be found in the dictionary

 

and don't use passwords with double letter or double numbers.

 

 

It took some thought but I came up with an excellent password using the four least used letters in the alphabet (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_frequency)

 

and I added the least used pin number  ( see  http://www.howtogeek.com/125378/the-most-common-and-least-used-4-digit-pin-numbers-security-analysis-report/)  and  it fits all those above requirements...check it out

 

my new ultra secure password    ZqxK8068

 

  No one will ever guess it now, not in a million years.
