How To Create and Safeguard A Strong Password

  1. Make long passwords. The longer, the better. Try using a minimum of 12 characters.
  2. Include numbers, symbols, uppercase and lowercase letters.
  3. Include words in different languages. The more less obscure the words, the better. The more ancient the language, the better.
  4. Do not use dictionary words.
  5. Do not use your date of birth or that of your spouse or children. Just don’t use dates of birth.
  6. Some things are meant to be changed regularly – like your pants. And passwords.
  7. Do not share your passwords. While there is love in sharing, when it comes to passwords, sharing is not nice.

Do not forget: a weak password means that your account can get hacked easily. If you have been using a weak password, replace it with a strong one today.
