 In case you missed the news... time to change your passwords again. 

Or, if you haven't, set up 2 step authentication on every service that offers it!
Time to Change Your Passwords Again

Are you using strong passwords? Are you using different passwords for every site you use? It's time to make that happen.

The world has just been hit again with another criminal theft of passwords, usernames and emails. This time by a Russian gang. Hold Security has just exposed the security breach. 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses have been stolen!

You need to change your passwords, particularly for any site where you keep financial information such as a credit card. But sites like Twitter and Facebook are vulnerable too because your sign-in information can be sold to companies who want to use those platforms to send out spam.

Although it costs money, you should definitely consider a password manager like AgileBits 1Password. Password managers create unique passwords for every site and store them safely for you. To cover both Mac and Windows: $100 for 5 users in family for Mac. For just Mac or Windows, $70 for 5 users. One user is $50. 

If you prefer to create passwords yourself, find a safe place to store them and use anagrams. 

For instance, 
My dog Benny died in 1980
becomes
mdBdi1980
then add some characters
mdBdi1980#%

Another strong WOW of why Google+ is super important to be a part of!   #hashtags  

...thank you +Sherry Nouraini for sharing it ~
A richer hashtag experience in Google Search

The #hashtags you see in Google+ posts are a useful way to discover conversations around a particular topic. In May we added related hashtags to the Google+ stream, turning any post into an opportunity to go deeper and explore what’s interesting to you.

Today we’re bringing a richer hashtag experience to Google Search. Here’s how it works:

- When you search on Google for a hashtag, say [#AmericasCup] or [#WaterfallWednesday], a set of relevant Google+ posts may appear to the right of regular results.
- You’ll only be able to see posts that have been shared publicly or shared with you.
- If you click on any of these posts you'll go to Google+, where you'll see the full set of relevant posts.
- You'll also see links to search for these hashtags on other social sites.

Today's update will be available (initially) to English language users in the US and Canada on google.com and google.ca. It’ll be live within the next few hours, so give it a go and let us know what you think.
