Update Your Password Every 90 Days

This is just a gentle reminder to my friends and family: Please protect yourself by CHANGING YOUR PASSWORD at least every three months. Seriously. It only takes a moment and is one of the best ways to prevent your profile from being compromised. Click on the down arrow to the right of the “Home” link in the Facebook toolbar at the top of your screen. Select “Account Settings” and click on “Password” for reset options. It has been helpful to me to develop a system for a common memorable password that I can vary every few months. Try to use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and even symbols in your password.
