If anyone is actually foolish enough to believe their personal and account information is safe just because they use a complex password and user name consider the fact that not too many years ago the Pentagon's most secure system was hacked by a 14-year-old kid in Russia and he claimed it only took him a couple days to get into the system. I tell my adult children, particularly my daughter, to never put anything on line that you don't want the entire world to see. She put stuff on Facebook, believing that anyone without an invitation would never see it--WRONG! Now she's paying the consequences.

Good Luck,

Gary
