Keep passwords strong

Most often email accounts are compromised as users have weak passwords. Creating strong passwords for all your online accounts is not a thing that should be done it is an imperative. In brief these are the important things to note.

  • Length. Make your passwords at least eight (8) long.
  • Complexity. Include a combination of at least three (3) upper and/or lowercase letters, punctuation, symbols, and numerals. The more variety of characters in your password, the better.
  • Variation. Change your passwords often. Set an automatic reminder to update passwords on your email, banking, and credit card websites every three months.
  • Variety. Don’t use the same password for everything. Cyber criminals can steal passwords from websites that have poor security, and then use those same passwords to target more secure environments, such as banking websites.
