A lot of accounts get hijacked because someone uses the same password everywhere. One site gets compromised and the hijackers can log in with those same credentials on other sites. I usually recommend storing your passwords in a password manager such as Password Safe. https://pwsafe.org The file is encrypted and will let you organize your passwords. Just be sure to back up the password file.

Well my wife was using something similar to that and our 17 year old college freshman cybersecurity nut grandson took 5 minutes to have all our accounts and passwords for the world to see. That brought on my problem.



I do think you have not much reason to be worried.  Do you work for an important corporation, a political official or other.
Do you venture on some risky websites, do not know what you doing, etc.?
Why would you let your young one even go there.  You say you are advanced in password security.
