Mozy for backup: use code GFBU22

Mozy is an online cloud backup service that will automatically backup your data during the day. We spent a little time on this but I have written it up before and will be talking about it at the next general meeting. Back in April 2017 I wrote about it.

Mozy for backup: use code GFBU22

You have heard of never ending stories? Well this technique lets you create a never ending password. All you need is the first and last letter of the website you need a password for and a 6 character phrase you will never forget. That phrase should contain at least one special character and one number. Pick something you will not forget like perhaps you first grandchild’s name. Say it was Steve. You might use $teve05 changing the S into a $ and adding the month he was born. Simply include that phrase sandwiched in to the first and last letter of the website. If the site were Amazon you would use the first letter of Amazon (A) followed by the phrase followed with the last letter of the site (n). Note the first is a capital and the last is lower case. So the password would be A$teve05n.

In addition to my own research, I want to give thanks to Harold at the Club, Newsletter, AskLeo, and for the useful ideas we take a look at each week.
