JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One of the things that makes me totally zone out is when I hear some data security expert talk to me about how every website I go to is supposed to have a different user name, a different password, and they should have all kinds of goofy things
in them.


Something capitalized that includes symbols, numbers, letters, etc. Alright, so who among us could possibly do that? Who can
remember?

I know when I go to a website and it requires some weird username or password that I never go to, I'm locked out. So how do we meet
this goal of having really good security for us and at the same time not drive ourselves crazy with a bunch of different passwords?

Check out Dashlane. It is a service you can use for free or buy a fancy premium version where you can have a different password for
every website. You only have to remember one.
