TECHNOLOGY

There’s never been a better time to beef up your security with stronger passwords. A Consumer Reports survey found that more than 50 percent of U.S. adults have six or more password-protected accounts online. Other research suggests that by 2020, there will be 100 billion online passwords in use all around the globe. Each one of these accounts is a potential target for hackers — and needs stronger passwords. Click here to read more.

Open Houses...Don’t Forget About Security

Oksana Tunikova, Rentberry

In nearly all the cases, preparing a property for showing happens in a big rush. You need to clean, declutter, wash and polish things up to make your home look as appealing to prospects as possible. Under the circumstances, it’s easy to forget about safety and security. Keep in mind that holding an open house means letting complete strangers in. This mere fact should be enough reason to tighten up on security. Make sure to hide from sight all checkbooks, private documents, jewelry, expensive gadgets, and other valuables. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
