PINS and PASSWORDS: Updated

Inching Towards 80

PLEASE NOTE: –APOLOGIES!  WORDPRESS, THE PUBLISHING PLATFORM I’VE USED SINCE 2008, HAS CHANGED IT’S PUBLISHING TO THIS BLOCK DESIGN AND REDUCED FONT SIZE. I’VE BEEN TRYING FOR HOURS TO GET BACK TO THE “CLASSIC DESIGN” THAT WE’RE FAMILIAR WITH–TO NO AVAIL.  IF YOUR COMPUTER HAS THE OPTION OF ENLARGING PRINT (USUALLY AT TOP OF SCREEN WITH A CAPITAL “A” IN TWO SIZES, IT SHOULD MAKE THIS POST READABLE–(MORE READABLE??) IN THE MEANTIME, I WILL WORK ON THIS PROBLEM AND HOPEFULLY RESOLVE THE ISSUE.  

Years pass. Our pins and passwords may have changed many times–or not. We are supposed to change them–mix it up a bit–but do we? And if we do, are we diligent about deleting the old and replacing with the new?

For starters, check out the original post on the subject, written almost 9 years ago, written before my husband’s unexpected death.

He was a very organized person, many pins and passwords were easy to access. But some we probably don’t usually think about (like Adobe reader–which for some reason way back I needed to access), were not. 

The “‘Digital Life after Death” column below from the Washington Post two weeks ago, introduces situations that update the subject. At least one–if not more–may prevent needless stress later on.
