What is a password?
A password is a word or string of characters used for user authentication to prove identity or access approval to gain access to a resource (example: an access code is a type of password), which is to be kept secret from those not allowed access. The use of passwords is known to be ancient.
How does it work?
You can come up with any word you like to use. Sometimes, the site would require that you use upper case, lower case, not to exceed a certain number of letters, or to use some special character, as a mandatory option. In other words, your password will not be accepted, unless you comply with the required description.
Let me tell you this:: having your Web browser remember your passwords and/or credit card details can be convenient, but it poses some security risks. How much of a risk depends on which browser you’re using, whether you sync with other devices, and whether you’re using any of the browser’s extra security features. Here are the main vulnerabilities in some of the most popular browsers—Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox—and ways you can protect against those weak spots.

He had an account on Hotmail, and there was no way to retrieve that account, coz he didn’t even keep the info he provided so we could use it for that purpose.
But we were to be blamed by him, coz he couldn’t understand what we were trying to explain for him, over and over again.
It was funny, but sad at the same time. Funny coz we were not used to people who live in isolation from technology, and sad coz we lost a client. So we should have educated him instead of losing him.
Learning, and more learning all the time!
Passwords became more and more sophisticated in our recent years, and it’s simply very normal coz of the development of everything around us.
