What difference does it make if I have strong or weak passwords for my financial stuff? If the password is a password keeper program and it's hacked, I'm exposed.

I'm not an expert on strength of passwords but from what I recall, you can create passwords that would take 100's of years for the fastest computers to crack. If your password keeper password is strong, you don't have to worry about hacking. I'm one of the many people who use the same password for many websites and it isn't that strong. I'm playing with fire. One of these days soon, I will start using a password keeper. I do know that once I do, I will be far safer than I am now from hackers.
