Today we are going to take a look at the popular social networking service Orkut. Orkut is owned by Google, which means that the Google username and password are used to log into the website. The risk associated with losing the account login is higher than that of other services, largely because the login allows the attacker to log in and use other Google services as well. It is for instance possible to log into Gmail with the same account details.
We have been receiving an increased amount of emails and comments of Facebook users who have difficulties logging into the popular social networking website. Our initial guide, called Facebook Login, has helped many Facebook users, but some still had difficulties despite the guidance.
We have created a PowerPoint presentation and a PDF document to better aid Facebook users log into the website. Both documents have the same contents and contain all the necessary information to fix Facebook login problems.
You can download the help documents below. We have also added them to the sidebar here at Login Helper and linked them in the original Facebook login post for greatest exposure.
Not the username, but the password is the most important part of an online account, and it is relatively easy to explain why. A username usually is displayed somewhere on the site the account is for. A Facebook wall post, a reply in an online forum or the writing of an article all show the username in one form or the other. And even if the username is not displayed openly it can be guessed more easily or often substituted with a user’s email address.
An account password on the other hand is not visible anywhere. Attackers with the right account password can usually get into an account easily, not so on the other hand if they only have the email or username of the user on the site.
Now that we have established that passwords are the most important part of a user’s online presence we need to find out how to make them as secure as possible.
