Is your password good enough? I doubt it. If someone steals your laptop or home computer they can gain access to all of your protected files in less than an hour if you’ve been skimping on password security. If you want a password that is essentially uncrackable it needs to be at least 11 characters long, include numbers, and have mixed upper and lower case characters. For additional security include spaces or other punctuation and for super-duper extra security include one of the symbols available on the number keys. These recommendations are especially important for files that you store on your computer or that you send over the Internet (email, ftp, etc.).
