WORLD PASSWORD DAY

untitled.png

There are so many weird holidays.  You can even make up you own if you want to.  Today happens to be World Password Day.  How do you feel about them?  For me, if I don’t write them down, I forget every time.  If I write them down, I am putting my identity at risk.  Who knows when someone will look through my desk to find my list?  I may encounter someone from another part of the world, sitting in an igloo collecting passwords or trying to decipher them – an over weight , disheveled, person with a foreign accent will go crazy when he tries to find my passwords.

I have visions of having all my accounts hacked at some time and the $2.49 left in my checkbook will become pocket change for some thief.  When you don’t have a lot of dough, no one seems to bother you too much.

Many people choose to make their password something that only they could know about.  For example:  Grandmaknowsbest/3, or kathy’sFat@5 or Authorwannabe#1.  Those would be difficult to hack.  Now I personally have not used these passwords.  I’ve come up with my own way of keeping track of those difficult yet important codes.

Since I’m getting old and memory often fails me, the only thing for me to do is change my password every time I log on to a favorite site.  You know that little sentence under the place where you’re supposed enter your password?  It says, “Forget your password?”  That way I never have to remember them.

I can imagine those in charge of changing passwords at Facebook, WordPress, Yahoo, Pinterest and Amazon going a little nutso over my constant changing.  It does keep me on the ball.  Not only does it clear out some of the memory in my brain’s data bank, but it’s fun to come up with new and creative ones.

So today on this World Password Day, how do you intend to celebrate?  I think I’ll change all of mine today . . . AGAIN!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    My password is not password, but I did have a dog named “dawg”. I named him “Deputy Dawg” after a Saturday morning cartoon, but my family and my grandparents shortened in to Dawg.

      I loved Deputy Dawg. I loved Saturday morning cartoons too. It was where I learned that in one scene you can have an anvil land on you head and in the next you were walking around like nothing happened. Great life lessons there.

    I never remember my passwords, even when they’re things only I would know.
    I had a friend once who named their dog, dog. I always thought if I ever got a dog, I’d name it DeeOhGee!!

      LOL. I never remember mine either. That’s why I have to change them all the time. I love the name. You should get a dog just so you could name him that.
