Hi I’m Elijah and in this lesson we will be learning about safe usernames and passwords, let’s get started!!
So first let’s talk about usernames, what is a username?
A username (also called a screen name) is how you identify yourself to other people and on web sites, so it’s important to give some thought to what you choose.
Your username should include letters and maybe numbers. It should not include the following– your real name, birthday, address, nicknames, school names or mascots, team names or positions, or anything else that could lead someone to you.
What might happen if you do not have a safe username is a predator can find your house and rob you or hurt you.
Now let’s talk about passwords, a password lets you access your personal stuff, your password should have numbers, letters and symbols. It should be hard to guess.
If you do not have a safe password your computer could be hacked and your personal stuff looked at, bank accounts stolen, you could be impersonated and all kinds of bad things.
You should have a separate password for all of your accounts, because if a hacker gets a hold of your password he only has access to one thing instead of having access to all of your stuff.
You should be the only one along with your parents to know your password so that one on eltes knows it. You should not trust friends because your friendship might change some day, hopefully that does not happen but you never know.
Thank you for watching.
And by the way, don’t forget to take the quiz that goes along with this lesson.
