It's happened again. Another security breach that compromised the personal information of 25 million people. But that number isn't the only thing that makes this breach a big deal.

Look for digital lifestyle expert Mario Armstrong's segments in the 8 o'clock hour of CNN Saturday Morning with T.J. Holmes.

    TJ I have a better Password solution. It is based on the site you are entering a password for so it changes for every site but is easy to remember. First you pick a word you won't forget like your dogs name. You use your initials and a number like the date of your birth.

    Example: I will use Puppy for say my dogs name, pluse my initials GBK and a day of birth like 10th. And I use the first 2 characters of the site.

    Example: for Google site I would use GoGbkPuppy10 Go for Google; Gbk for initials; Dogs name Puppy; and date.

    Example Yahoo would be YaGbkPuppy10

    Example CNN would be CnGbkPuppy10

    Example Twitter would be TwGbkPuppy10

    See how easy this is? I only have to remember GbkPuppy10 but my password changes for every site.
