While passwords if selected correctly help, I'm thinking maybe the ultimate biometric device, blood sample with DNA scan. The only time this might be a problem is if the individual had a twin. In that case, a pin number to differentiate between the two twins for example.

Great Article
Such a great article. What I do for more security I use Password managers like passpack this is what I do:

- As a human it is difficult to generate complex passwords. They are many password generators available online along with difficulty level. 
- I just create password, store them in my password manager and never allow my internet browser to remember my password.
- I log out my facebook and other softwares before I shutdown my PC.
- Whenever I have to leave my laptop even for few seconds I always fist lock it and then go.
- Keep changing my password after 15 days( Yeah, it's hard. But the prevention is better then cure, right?)

Just like this blog, I came across another great article which has break down these things in more detail. I would suggest all the readers to give it a read too:
