A Little Birdy Holds My Secret #edtech

By now, if you've signed up for even half the sites I've mentioned in this blog you've likely had to come up with many a unique password.  In this day and age, we can never be too careful about protecting our identity online and as a network administrator, I have always suggested coming up with a different password for every site you register with.  I realize that's not always practical, so at least try to come up with something that's easy to remember, yet complex enough not to guess.  This is a great lesson to share with your students as well.  Passwordbird can help you with this.  There is no sign up or download required (there is advertising with a download link - which is likely related to another product).  Passwordbird will ask you three simple questions (What is your favorite name? Is there a word that is special to you? Is there a special date you can think of?)  Based on your responses, Passwordbird will create a password that is not only complex but should be easy to remember.
