    Password question

    would it do me any good to use a word from a foreign language as a password, or would a computer and/or hackers tools just interpret that character back into English anyway? Sorry if this is a stupid question...

    Re: Password question

    What foreign word have you been using as your password? It depends on the specific word and, surprisingly, the site. Post your passwords cross referenced with what site they're on, and I'm sure we can help.

    Check this out before you decide on your next password:

    Also, in this and all xkcd comics, make sure to hover over the picture when you're done for the alt-text "bonus"
