Since spiders and lasers can't guard the info on the inside of your computer, you need to set strong passwords. Lifehacker has some great how-to advice for setting good passwords.
Before you roll your eyes, take a minute to consider what it would it cost you to re-build your life if your identity was stolen. They give as an example, what if your retirement fund password is breached, could that give scammers a way into your Amazon account or your bank account? Or, to bring it home a bit more, if your relationship went sour, what kind of havoc could a spurred former-SO wreak on your accounts?
It's worth taking a few minutes to prevent the pain by reading the advice so that you can upgrade your passwords.
