    So I'm getting paranoid I guess about the number of accounts I have now. It's mostly the financial web sites, my bank, PayPal etc. and Google as that one leads to so many others, that I am concerned about. anybody know of a good password manager?

    You know it's weird, I'm going through a few things myself as of late and i give thought to where to keep them that I can get to it yet remain secure. I use to be pretty casual bout this now I do get overly concerned about it. I guess this is part of the new me and I best nip this in the bud before I let it get away from me.

    I'll let you in on a little secret I'm a little ashamed of. yesterday I got a "friend" request from somebody that I thought I was a friend of so I accepted it and within minutes she was jumping in on messenger asking me "how was I" and things of that sort. Very strange I thought but it wasn't long before she started "teasing" me about how she got a very exciting message from "a very vague source" emphasis mine about how she won $200,000 from an unexpected unknown source" she was so vague I was starting to get a little concerned about her, maybe she was "loosing" it (she's older and her husband passed on) I was worried for her. She gave me a # to text to and I'd get good news. At this point I started trying to get myself out of a very uncomfortable situation, something was wrong. I canceled my Facebook messenger account with her and then I searched for her account on Facebook and saw she had two accounts! I went to her regular Facebook account and boom ! She had several messages from friends saying her account was hacked!

    So it seems there was no damage down, he/she wouldn't have gotten any info from me that wasn't visible to millions of others if they happened to click on my page. But I was a little ashamed at how easily I was led astray. How easy it was. Yes, right off the bat I noticed some irregularities in her messages and such (I'm trying to come up with a way to display the convo.) but I still stayed hooked for a bit. Not because I had a text # with a chance to be given $200,000 but because it appeared a friend had given her name and number to the wrong person and it was going to cost her.

    One thing about recent security measures that pisses me off is that some websites won't allow the browser to store my username and/or password. This forces me to literally create Word files with that information stored in them. And obviously, that's not a very secure system.
