Security and Passwords Keep your stuff safe! Want to waste days of work, cost your parish a lot of extra money, and tick your pastor off? Just use a weak password and fail to update your anti-virus software weekly. What is a weak password? Is your password in the dictionary? Is it all letters? Less than 8 characters long? If you answered yes, you have a weak password.
