We are referring to all the passwords we have on different internet platforms: our email, our personal Facebook account, our Twitter profile… if someone accessed it, all our secrets would be exposed.
How to protect our passwords on the Internet?
- Beware of easy passwords: Yes, all of us have thought of putting our name, our date of birth or the name of our dog with whom we pose lovingly on Instagram. Staggering mistake. If we choose simple passwords for social network or email accounts, it is quite likely that people who know us can gossip about what we have in our privacy.
- Do not leave passwords on web pages: Many pages such as those that book trips online, buy plane tickets or even any test that you do on a page, may ask you for your email and password. One of two, either you make sure it doesn’t stick, or you don’t get into the game of writing it.
- Never let him remember the password: Even if it is our own computer or mobile phone, it is more advisable to write the Facebook or Twitter password every day, rather than suddenly lose it and all our secrets are exposed. And of course, never let a foreign electronic device save our password.
Delete your trace in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox
- How to delete the password in Chrome: But, if we have already left our password, even if it was on our own computer: calm down, all is not lost. We can delete the passwords saved in Chrome, in one of the tabs that appear in the Help tab in the browser itself. We will find it if we click on the Chrome menu, go to settings, and then go to Show advanced options.
- It will be in this part where we will find a saved password manager, where both Windows and Mac users can easily delete passwords in the dialog that appears in the Passwords and forms tab, as well as Key Access in the case of computers of appe. Thus, we will not have a problem to delete our password.
- How to delete passwords in Firefox: We can also delete our traces in the case of Mozilla. Don’t panic, it’s simple. We simply have to go to the Menu tab and click on Preferences, and then go to Saved Passwords, where the password manager will be present.
- Subsequently, we have to continue giving Show passwords, using the search box where we have put our user to eliminate the one we have put. If we want absolutely everything to be deleted, we have to click on the tab: delete everything.
- But if in addition to all this, we want to protect ourselves even more, we can change our password regularly. Yes, it may seem excessive, but if we keep our password for months or even years in our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email accounts, surely at some point we have not realized it and it has been recorded somewhere. If we change it regularly, we will be much more protected on the Internet.
