your i.t. guy wants you to know... that if your computer is locked down in some way there is a legitimate reason
Remember when Kevin downloaded a virus that spread throughout the entire network? Or when Brenda took down the entire email server by sending an email that everyone in the office opened for “TodayisFreeBurgerDay-BobsBurgers.html” ?
Or taped to your phone, or worse, your monitor. (Would you tape your house key to your front door?) You target yourself for a breach by giving anyone easy access to your password if you place it for all to find in a not so “hidden” place. Think of how easy it is to walk by with a phone, snap a picture of your monitor and the sticky-note with your password on it. The cleaning crew, maintenance, and even security now have easy access to after-hours activities because of you! Be cyber-safe and use a password protection program such as KeePass, LastPass, Dashlane, RoboForm or Sticky Password, to name a few.
