13. What types of software protect a computer from viruses and other malware?

Installing antivirus software will help keep you protected from viruses and malware. You must keep it up to date. It is also a good idea to have firewall software active.

14.  Why should you use a different password for all websites you access?

You should use a different password for each website you access, because if someone steals your password, they can attempt to use it along with your username/email address on other websites, including online banking.

22. What does a user interface control?

The user interface is what you see when you are interacting with a program. It controls what you see on the computer screen and how you enter data.

Passwords that appear on both lists: password, 123456, 12345, 1234, 1234567, football, qwerty, dragon, welcome, abc123.

Consumers continue to use bad passwords because they are easy to remember, or they are a pattern on the keyboard such as “qwerty” or “1234567.” I do not use any of these passwords. Creating a strong password requires upper and lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers. You should not, however, use a word followed by number and then a special character. Special characters and numbers are more useful if they are in the midst of the password.  If you are to use a line from a song, make modifications to it so that it isn’t easy to hack. You could substitute $ in for S, or take the first letter from each of the words in the phrase to make an acronym.
