In this cyber world cyber privacy and password protection is very
important. Privacy is our right to control what happens with personal
information about us. Cyber privacy is the privacy and security level of personal
data published via the internet. It is a broad item that refers to a variety of
factors, techniques and technologies used to protect sensitive and private data,
communications and preferences. Here we discuss about cyber privacy, crimes
involving cyber privacy and how to minimize the internet privacy violation
risks. And also we discuss about the password protection. Password protection
is a security process that protects information accessible via internet. Every
password is important with many ways while we using internet. It keeps a great
privacy of our information on internet. We can say password protection is also
an important part of cyber privacy.
Cyber privacy is mostly defined by the services used by individuals. Whatever
agreements individuals agree to when they sign up for a service usually signs
away their right to privacy. In other cases the reasonable expectation of privacy
is not reasonable if the behaviours or communications in question were
knowingly exposed to public view. Internet privacy is a cause for concern for
any user planning to make an online purchase, visit a social networking site,
participation in online games or attend forums. Internet privacy, ethics and
online security are important issues because they are present in every action
taken by every user online. With the rising rate of incidents of hacking, cyber
bullying and identity theft, it is clear that people need directions now more than

secret word or string of characters that is used for authentication.
Basically every security system is based on password. In modern times, user
names and passwords are commonly used by people during a log in process that
controls access to protected computer operating systems, mobile phones, cable
TV decoders, automated teller machine (ATM) etc. A typical internet user has
passwords for many purposes: logging into accounts, retrieving email, accessing
