With so many major retailers and social media sites falling victim to hacking, it seems more important than ever before to protect your personal data online. However, many computer users use the same passwords to login to multiple websites -- a big mistake, according to security experts.
One simple password may be easier to remember, but it's also easier for hackers to gain access your personal information. Online security expert Justin Cappos says all hackers have to do is break into the customer database of one company. They can then gain access to multiple sites and even financial accounts that have the same username and password. And he says its happening more and more every day.
