Written by Nora D’Ecclesis, one of the nation’s best-selling authors committed to reducing readers’ stress, ‘Lock Your Door’ cuts through the smorgasbord of passwords and pins the average person has to outline a simple, powerful system for storing this vital information. Hailed “a tool to make life a little easier” by critics, D’Ecclesis uses the first half of the book to give readers the lowdown on the history of hacking and its ever-evolving methods, before guiding them through her revolutionary system for storing passwords and changing them regularly. Nobody can ever be too safe; just ask half of all U.S. adults who have been hacked at some point in the past twelve months.
Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/14/2015 -- While everyone knows the importance of a diligent, systematic approach to online security, the reality sees most people scrambling for the right sticky-note with the password to their Hotmail inbox, that business card they wrote their IRS login details on and – for that old AOL account they set up in 1988 – the trusty old "123456".
But look at the statistic above; 50% of U.S. adults have one of their online accounts hacked every year, a sure sign that this mish-mash approach to storing and retrieving passwords (and in some cases never, ever changing them) is far from working. Not to mention – it's darn stressful!
In her new book, the queen of stress-busting literature, Nora D'Ecclesis, changes the game for those looking to stay safe but unsure how to store pins and passwords. 'Lock Your Door' could easily change the statistics for good.
Secure functioning online requires a bewildering array of usernames and passwords. Nothing is more frustrating than forgetting a password or security question while trying to gain access to a website, company or social media. This book was designed to avert these frustrating occurrences which result in stress and decrease quality of life. Lock Your Door presents a system of using a written journal that contains all of the information necessary to easily find and retrieve passwords and allocates space to change a password a minimum of four times a year. If you prefer written to online storage of your information, this is a good system for you.
"The bottom line is that people need a different password for every online account they have; one that is totally unique and changed frequently enough to keep technology guessing," explains the author. "But I totally understand that it is easier said than done – hence the new journal system I have created. This allows people to stay on top of their online security in a way that is 100% stress-free."
Continuing, "It's almost like building a Yellow Pages for your online credentials. You won't need to remember anything and can just look each password up as and when you need it. Plus, you'll be on a sensible schedule for changing your passwords – putting you ahead of 99% of the population who will become victims to hacking, keylogging or both before too long."
Readers agree that the system is powerful. One Amazon reader comments, "I purchased Lock Your Door as a gift and realized the value of keeping it for myself. Half the book is written to explain hacking and pins and the rest is an excellent system to store passwords. Based on the information in the book, I changed all my passwords. My copy is now filled in and I will definitely be buying more to give as gifts. I will never lose or forget another password! I'm so excited to have this tool at my disposal."
Karen adds, "Lock Your Door is just what I needed. If you use a computer, and who doesn't nowadays, you too need to purchase this book. It takes only minutes to read, but gives you all the information you need to protect your PIN numbers, usernames and passwords. At the end of the day you will have a handy place to keep all of this information. Then you can just lock it away & keep it safe. Before reading this book, I never realized how easy it was to be "hacked". Buy this book...you will never regret it!"
A busy mother of three writes, "I never realized how unsecured my passwords where! In this day and age we need to protect ourselves. Now I have to knowledge to properly protect my family and my business!"
