What is Double Password?

Strong passwords should have a significant length and cannot contain normal words. Only random digits and letters of different case. Such passwords are extremely hard to remember and it takes time to enter. But, even strong passwords have their weaknesses. When you type a password, it can be intercepted by a spy program that logs all your keystrokes. Others can see what you type (even if the password field on the screen is masked, the password can be read by buttons you hit on your keyboard.)
Until now, the only solution was to buy a secure token. A secure token is a hardware key that is used instead of or in addition to your normal password authentication. There are two main problems with the hardware solution, though. First, it is expensive. And second, you can use them only with software that has built-in support for this method of authentication.

But, from now on, you can turn any USB flash drive into a secure token! No need to purchase an additional expensive device. All you need is about 2 megabytes of free space on your flash drive or other USB gadget, such as an MP3 player, PDA or even a USB-pluggable mobile handset.How does it work? Our software, Double Password, installs onto your flash drive. When you type a password, the program intercepts it and converts it into a super-strong password string on-the-fly. You can use simple, easy-to-remember passwords without the risk of being cracked.

Another benefit of using Double Password is that nobody can steal your passwords. Spy programs are useless. Even if someone gets the “weak” password that you type on the keyboard, it means nothing. This password will only work when your USB flash is inserted.

While typical hardware locks will work only with software that supports secure tokens, Double Password works with any software. It simply substitutes your weak password with a strong one.

Double Password can be effectively used to securely lock your Windows account, to protect your laptop and to bring a new level of security to all software that uses password authentication.

Prevent ur Account from Hackers

Here I will be discussing how u can protect ur account’s from Hackers or for the right word Crackers.

1. Beware of Phishing :-

Phishing is one of the most widely used and simplest ways of gaining access to one’s account thru hacking.Phishers are pages which are uploaded into hosting sites and then given away to victims….

In appearance the phisher looks exactly as ur common login page.

For eg :-taking into consideration an orkut account and u received a link by someone asking u to click on that link.

Now when u click on that link , it takes u to a new page that looks like ur orkut account login page.

Don’t be fooled by that , now most of the people will without a second thought enter their username and passcode and press enter.But u will not be logged into ur account.It is a phisher , ur login info will be sent to the person who sent u the link.

So no matter who and however trusty that person is do not login on any other page except.

Or else ur account might be on the verge of getting hacked……

PHISHING DONE IN ANOTHER WAY

MANY TIMES .. PHISHERS WILL SEND U A MAIL IN UR EMAIL ID .. WITH THE ID — GMAILPASSWORDRECOVERE .. ET ETC .. AND TELLING U TO VERIFY UR ACCOUNT OR ELSE UR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED .

DON’T EVER LOGIN AT ANY PAGE OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL WEBSITE

2. Keep a strong password :-

Always have a passcode with many characters , minimum 6 characters having a combination of small and big letters and number and special characters like “$”.Then there are very minimal chances that ur passcode will be hacked…..

3. Keyloggers :-

Many times u make online friends that u do not know personally.Then after many chats the person tells u he created a game and wanted u to see it and give a review.U gladly accept it, the game might actually be a keylogger.Keyloggers have become very common nowadays.Now when u double click on the keylogger it gets activated.The next time u login into any page ur username and passocode will be sent to the other guy…..

So do not accept such things from people u do not trust very much…….

4. Keeping ur antivirus up-to-date :-

Many people believe that antiviruses do nothing and hence they do not install them , and think that if a virus infects their PC then they will format the PC.But this is wrong , whenever a virus enters ur PC then there is a very strong possibility that a bad sector is created in ur PC.Antiviruses thus protect ur PC….
