Stalking, and just plain crazy ex’s in general, are a dime a dozen in this world. One of the ways that they can trash your life, or simply find out where you are going all the time is to break into your IM. You can only imagine the possibilities there.

While there are a lot of good sites that give you the standard warnings, I found this post on One You that is worth the read. It’s all about choosing a random password.
