How to Avoid Password Meltdown

How to Avoid a Password Meltdown

A terrific way to avoid having a password meltdown is to type your user name and password into a separate document on your computer (secure from prying eyes), save that file, and the then highlight, copy  and paste the saved user name and password into the appropriate login page.

Murphy’s Law dictates that if a password is written down in human hand, the password will be wrong (or at least it will be wrong often enough to warrant following the procedure above), especially in this day and age when generating strong passwords (case-sensitive, containing a least one letter, one number and one symbol) is important to keep information secure.

By now, most of us know well the feeling of what it is like to lose a password.

Consider following the copy and paste method when entering user names and passwords, and you are likely to save yourself a lot of stress (and wasted time) in the future.
