Cat Can't Scratch It
- May 9, 2000
Google is advocating a security checklist which includes changing your password twice a year and never using it again. Good advice from Google. Now if Street View would stop driving by my house, I would feel much safer. Maybe Google also will advise you to move twice a year and never go back.
Webroot's Brandt said that Google's advice for twice-yearly changes is reasonable. He thinks people should change their passwords as often as they can. "I change my passwords at least four times a year, but I'm a security nerd and use password manager software which generates the passwords and reminds me to change them."
