A complex password is a necessity, but hard to remember. And with so many websites requiring a password these days, users often reuse the same password again and again with different sites. BAD idea! 

When a big company gets hacked (like LinkedIn, for example), the criminals post and sell the username, e-mail, password and confidential information in that account on the DARK WEB. Since many people reuse the same password, hackers will try that e-mail and password combination across multiple sites, including Amazon, PayPal, your bank and other sites where you might store credit card information. 

Remember, they aren’t doing this manually. They have highly sophisticated software to automate ALL of this. If you want a better way of storing and organizing UNIQUE passwords, Red Box recommends using a password management software program.
