This week’s tip is a reminder NEVER to give your password to anyone. Once it is no longer a secret, it is no longer secure. If anyone calls saying they are from the help desk or tech support team and asks for your password, they are not legitimate. It is someone trying to access your credentials.
Twitter announced yesterday that everyone with an account should change their password. It seems as if Twitter stored everyone’s password in an internal file that was not encrypted. While they claim that the password file was not breached or exposed in any way, they are recommending that every Twitter account user change their password. Might be a good time to update those privacy settings too!
