Unfortunately, the stark light of day dawns, and the couple parts ways.
Back in Siberia, Vlad is overcome by doubts. Not only will Natasha’s brother kill him, but his own past is reason enough to keep her away. He vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe, even it if means never seeing her again.
With so many reasons to stay apart, will the ties that bind be strong enough to pull them together?
Happy Father’s Day! Here is a tech tip that I hope everyone, not just fathers, will find useful. I know Vladimir, the hero in Alpha Revealed, would have appreciated hearing this tip, especially after his baby was born.
Many of us have video cameras attached to our Wi-Fi. Perhaps you have a video doorbell or security camera. Maybe you there is a baby monitor in your home with video capabilities. If you have any of these, you must be careful. Hackers are using these cameras to spy on homeowners. You’d be amazed what hackers can find out about you just by watching and listening in.
A strong password is the key to keep the hackers out of your life, whether it’s a website you frequent, your social media, or even the video camera in your home. Most everything we do now requires a password, and while it can be tricky to memorize a bunch of complicated passwords, it’s necessary to keep you and your family safe.
Here are some tips for creating a password:
Make it long — This is the most important factor. Make it at least 15 characters or more if possible.
Use a mix of characters — Use a combination of uppercase and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols.
Avoid common substitutions — Password crackers are hip to the usual substitutions. Whether you use DOORBELL or D00R8377, a brute force attacker can hack your account/device easily.
Don’t use sequential letters and/or numbers —For example, avoid ABCDEF or 456789, and do not use sequential keyboard paths either (like qwerty).
Long, complicated passwords can be difficult to memorize. Try stringing what seem like random words and numbers together then make a sentence to help you remember them. For example, if your password was Battery10horsescar, you might remember it by memorizing the sentence, A battery of 10 horses pulled the car.
Of course, you can also use an app to store your passwords, eliminating the need to memorize anything. Password manager apps can be downloaded onto your phone. Many will give you the ability to store passwords, as well as, user login info and credentials. Many will also sync the information across your desktop, mobile devices, and browsers. Some password manager apps can even allow you to share a login information with another person. These apps can be a time saver by storing all your information in one place. You don’t need to go hunting for a password, because it’s there at your fingertips with a press of a button.
Don’t make it easy for the hackers. Do whatever you must to keep you and your family safe. I know Vladimir would.
