How often do you change your password?
10 Jul 08
At present i have around 70 codes and passwords to remember. None of them are the same and changing them depends on their function. If its just a forum or online hangout i tend not to bother or very rarely. My others get changed fairly regularly, though not at a set time. Some people change their passwords like clockwork (i.e beginning of the month) that can be a bad thing particularly if they talk about the routine. This happens in alot of workplaces and undesirables then know that if they access an account they have according to the above example, a month before it gets changed .. All the best Matt

i don't often change my password.because i don't think it can be stolen by someone. if you change your password,can you ensure that your password is in security. and if you change your password constantly,you will can't remember the correct password that you use,so i don't often change my password. why you think that your password will be stolen for a long time? and have you forgot your password ever? and what did you do when you forgot your password? thanks for you good discussion. happy a good day.

I don't regularly change my password. I know that's not recommended, but I'm just too lazy to do it on a regular basis. I do change it whenever I forget and request for another password to be sent over. I guess that's the only time that I get it changed not because I want to, but because I have to. :)

I don't change my password much because I don't have really important information on it, but in some account where I manage information about my money bookers account and for my domain name registration and other important things, or where I use them for things relate to money I try to change them once every week, anyway I think if you don't use shared computers and don't download videos from internet, it would be really hard to someone get your password, and if they do , it would mean that someone near of you did it, I have some friend that are very paranoid and they change it ever day, or they have a very long passwords, with many symbols on it, I don't really like hard to remember passwords because I want to do things fast on internet and it upset me when I can't remember my password for some web site or for some account.

I don't change my passwords unless activity has been taking place that I know I didn't do. I had this happen on my ebay, and ended up with three pairs of jeans that I never bid on, and would never bid on, and a digital camera. I changed my password and have not had that problem since. On my other accounts I use different passwords and I write them down so I don't forget them myself. :)

hello friend,i am glad to discuss here on mylot about the topic.I think every people take good care of his own password,and always want to keep them protected well.I think the best time to change the password is every 72 days once.and many of my friends suggest me to do it like this..but sometimes, i think it is no necessary to change it frequently.I think it is a troubled thing to do. lol good luck to you.

Usually I don't change my password, untill I find that is the suspect my account maybe stole by other, or there is a virus which can't be killed in my computer. Because I think that doesn't matter for most of my online account, if I loose it, I have the method to have them back, and until now I don't find any of my account have been stoled. I hope this will not happen to me. Sometimes I forget some of my password, but lucky I find it back from the website.
