Press release from the issuing company

In the Graphic Communication Advisors Group (GCAG) March 2022 article entitled, Password Hacking Is Not Magic, Laura Moynihan, Principal of Digital Helpmates and a GCAG advisor, teaches how to create and easily access multiple passwords that cannot be hacked.

Moynihan points out: “The mechanics of hacking seem too complicated for most home and business users to spend their time wondering about.” She stresses that if you want to create passwords that cannot be hacked, “...it’s crucial to avoid passwords that are short, similar, or simple.” According to Moynihan, “understanding how we are hacked or...how our passwords are guessed, is key to keeping our information safe.” Her article describes the most common methods of hacking passwords and safeguarding them. Most importantly, Moynihan offers what she calls the “antidotes” to attacks, and describes the use of Password Managers as safeguards. She recommends LastPass for developing personalized long, complex, and unique passwords that are easily accessibly with no need to memorize them.

She presents an approach to password development that, for the most part, cannot be hacked. Anyone concerned with password security should read Moynihan’s article.”
