Your password could be stolen this way (1)

We have many online accounts, such as Google account, Facebook account, Twitter account. Many people register their accounts with the same username and the same e-mail, set the same password, thinking this is a good method where they only have to remember one pair of username and password, thus convenient, and the account name and password are less likely forgotten.

But once one of the accounts is stolen, all accounts are in danger.

Even though you trust those big-name companies, you trust that their employees or any individual doesn't have access to your password. What about other forums and websites? Do you trust that none of them will ever use your information on other purposes? Do you think they can protect your information from any attack? Even Yahoo was affected by data theft.

The best practice is to use different e-mails and different passwords to register on different sites. You can even use temporary e-mail addresses. Avoid using birthday, phone number or other personal information as the password.
