Think through your use of passwords!

Security should always be a top priority. Usernames and passwords falling into the wrong hands is a big threat to intrusions and hoaxes on the Web.

During the fall, the Chief Security Officer of Facebook, Alex Stamos has beaten the drum for Internet security risks on several tech events and fairs. His main thesis is that reusing the same passwords on multiple sites and for various accounts is by far the biggest threat to Internet users across the world.

"Even when you look at the advanced attacks that get a lot of thought in the security industry, these usually start with phishing or reused passwords," Alex Stamos.

The problem being identified is not the same as solving it. Although people in Europe say they are concerned about their online privacy, many Internet users either lack expertise on tech or are just not security conscious. You should therefore give your website visitors options to keep their security and passwords safe. Also, make them aware when a connection is not secure. Again, security should always be a top priority.
