03/05/2014, Police over in India did not manage to act on hundreds of corruption complaints in a time frame of up to 8 years, simply because there was one niggling issue that caused the inaction. Apparently, it was reported that the police themselves have no clue as to what the computer password is. This caused Delhi officers to be unable to operate a portal that actually carried more than 600 complaints, […]
08/07/2013, Your personal information is definitely very precious to you, which is why you should take all the possible and necessary steps to prevent any kind of personal information from getting stolen or abused.

04/23/2013, Passwords are sensitive stuff, and with so many user accounts for a person to hold these days, it can get rather tricky trying to remember all of them, as some sites require 8 characters minimum, while others want a healthy mix of numbers, letters and at least one uppercase character, leaving some of us to use the same password across multiple accounts where possible. While that makes life easier for […]
04/08/2013, When you consider how easy it is for anyone to look over your shoulder while you’re typing in your password, as secure as you believe it to be, there will always be a way for people to figure it out of they really want to. But it looks like a future of typing in passwords may be a thing of the past thanks to a new project that is using […]
03/31/2013, If you think that having so many passwords to remember is a bane to your mind these days, how about choosing one that has some obscene words thrown into the mix? That ought to make life easier for those brain cells of yours, no?

02/04/2013, Even though Twitter doesn’t have as many active users as Google+ and Facebook, I still prefer to use it as my go-to platform to share all of my future meals, communicate with celebrities and share my random thoughts.

01/18/2013, In the digital age, passwords are a complete necessity in order to keep others out of your private accounts. What would Facebook, Gmail or any other service be without a password that only allows you to access it while keeping others out? We’d have absolutely no privacy whatsoever as anyone and everyone could just access any account they want. The tricky thing about passwords is you need to remember them, […]
01/01/2013, I am not quite sure just how the law allows employers to know an employee’s Facebook password in the first place, but I am glad that the courts have ruled that employers in California and Illinois no longer have the authority or rule of power to request for Facebook passwords from their employees. This particular law took effect as the clock struck 12:01 am in both the states of California […]

06/29/2012, In Evansville, Indiana, a Police SWAT team has executed a search warrant on a home in full tactical gears. The reason: threats perpetrated against local Police forces over the internet, threatening the officers lives, their family, including the mention of home-made bombs. The Police needed no more to quickly find what Internet address was used to send the threats, and what physical address it was linked to. But when they […]
06/07/2012, It was just early yesterday morning when LinkedIn reported a security breach, and here we are with word that dating site eHarmony has also confirmed a password breach of their own, where password hashes for eHarmony were rolled out on the very same Russian forum that published the LinkedIn hashes earlier. In an effort to calm everyone down, Becky Teraoka, of eHarmony’s corporate communications, had this to say, “After investigating […]
05/11/2012, There has been a lot of hoo-ha lately on how employees should not ask prospective and current employees access to their Facebook account. While it might have merely been frowned upon in the past, it looks like a new legislation has been introduced that is looking to protect employees and prospective employees from employers who might be asking for access to their personal social media website accounts as part of […]
