•In wake of the hack that had happened the evening of July 14th, I cannot stress enough how important password security is. I advise anybody who hasn't changed their password already to do so, and remember, the stronger the better.
•your password should be 16-32 characters long, even longer if you'd like.
•the more random, the better
•if you have a word in there, mix it up, make a letter or two capitalized the the middle.
•add symbols in there ( ! , . @ $ _ ? ; )
•use symbols multiple times, make your passwords strong!
•• I can't stress how important password security is in general. Remember, it doesn't have to be easy to remember, your Steemit password is attributed to real money and it is important only you have access to that money and your account!
write down your password and put it in a safe place.
Don't store your passwords on your pc or cellular device!
Type your password up and back it up onto a USB. ( but do not store text file onto your pc, just keep it stored in your backup )
BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!
• Steemit is a beautiful tool and platform, and i am glad to see in the wake of this news, the Steemit team is dealing with things professionally and in a respectful manner.
It is good this happened in an early stage rather then later stages, now we can create stronger security protocols and techniques that will further avoid these actions from occurring and Create a much more secure and safe platform.
