Cyber Tips – Privacy – 2

Having learned to protect ourselves, we developed different passwords for different sites, each with a bit of a twist.

Some were words misspelled.  

As an example, Spock’s password had been Vulcan.  It then became Vilcan, Volcan, Vulcon…etc.  

Some used a common word like Toast, but the ‘O’ would be replaced by a 0 (Zero).

All this was done on Bulletin Board Servers before we entered Cyberspace.

When we did gain access to the Internet , in 1995, we had a number of different Nicknames and passwords we could jumble so as to make hacking our accounts not so easy.

What do you think?
