Erin, with all respect, I don't doubt that you are reading that information off of the people you are performing reading for, but I do doubt reading that information from spirits etc.
All readings I had and have witnessed are based on "fishing" for information and excellent observation skills. Nothing magical... It also explains inability to read to people that "don't believe" i.e. don't reveal necessary information for exploration.
BTW, I am willing to bet that password recovered in the example below was not strong password with meaningless letters and numbers...
It is always interesting to me how spirits have trouble getting started and lack specifics until the reader reveals more information and "guides" them...
You know I'd be surprised if you can provide any useful information for me in a reading...
No disrespect really.

Very confusing but I told my sitter and she said, "Oh, that's because I loved my grandmother's wedding ring so much I had a replica made and that's what I wear on my finger." That is not general and not obvious.
Or the time the deceased person came to me without a head and my sitter confirmed that the person she most wanted to hear from had been decapitated in a car accident (not a common way to go!).
Or when the dead woman gave her daughter her computer password so she could access it after death. Even my sitter didn't know that. So how am I getting the info? It can't be telepathy because in this case my sitter didn't know the password to the computer files.
I totally understand if a person can't believe it until they experience it themselves. And not every spirit I speak to gives me such personal and specific info. I wish they did. But when they do, it blows even me away!
