Review your passwords

I got a shock one day when I needed to change a password for a very old bank account. Years ago, I made some weak passwords! Some of these passwords were more than 10 years old and they were short and not random. I made it a point to review all my bank, credit card, and investment passwords, as well as those at stores. At least a half dozen were too weak to avoid a possible compromise by today's hackers.

In Keepass simply bring up your full list and press CTRL-H to view the passwords. Change any that are duplicated or too short or could be found in a dictionary.
