Computer Hacking!

By: Tyler Penovich

How to prevent your computer from being hacked.

Don’t use 123456, abcdef or your name, “password” as your password, pet name, college name or country name, or your date of birth. They all can be easily be hacked. Don't reveal your passwords to others. Never give your password out in an email even if they look desperate. Don't use the default password assigned to you unless it's a requirement. Reset and change passwords often.

The risk.

I don’t believe computer hacking is a major problem today although you can never be too safe. A little mistake can cost you hundreds maybe even thousands. There are not many people out there that can hack computers but you still should use passwords will capital letters or symbols. It takes much longer to get into an account when you don’t use all lowercase letters.
