Every day, I struggle to remember all the passwords I need to keep my life in order. It feels like I’m going crazy at times, but I’ve walled off the part of my brain that tells me to take the easy way out. I can’t start thinking that way. Why? I know the difference between being hacked and being smacked.

When you get hacked, another person gathered information about you and uses that information to fish out the data they want. Most fraud attempts start far away from the target, gathering up all the information there is to get around the edges of the victim’s life. It’s done that way because the information you give away can say a lot about the kind of passwords you use and the barriers you have to build for yourself to protect your pertinent info.
