- Jun 18, 2013A Few Of My Yahoo! Accounts, I Had To Change My Password For...............Hang In There
My password is really simple and not very secure. I have had it for years. Never had any problems. I am just wondering if the more difficult you make your password, the more the hackers try and get it. Maybe it gives them more of a challenge. A lot of people that I have talked to that have been hacked say that their passwords were very complicated yet they were stolen numerous times. Just my thoughts LOL.

Generally speaking, password ideas are a bad idea.
I use PasswordSafe to generate and store random passwords, a separate
one for each service I use. It also helps protect against simple
keylogging malware -- I never type my online passwords, PasswordSafe can
fill in the username and password at most login pages, or copy/paste the
password through the clipboard.

You don't need a Yahoo Mail address to run Yahoo Groups, and you
certainly don't need a paid Mail Plus account. You need not feel stuck
