Passwords are like underwear

BloomersOnTheLine What would Mom say?

  1. the longer, the better
  2. don't share them with friends
  3. don't leave them lying around

That last one is especially important in a library setting (that means no taped notes under the keyboard, no cheat sheets in drawers right next to the computer, and no post-its on the monitor). Hopefully no library visitors come in with the intention of getting into things they shouldn't, but it's best to eliminate temptation and keep account and password info private.... tucked safely away from curious and prying eyes!
