A password is usually a string, string, or series of characters that Internet services, software, or computer systems require users to enter using the keyboard before they can continue to use certain features.

Passwords are possibly the weakest link in information security. Users are always careful when creating a password. According to Microsoft, a strong password should have the following characteristics:

• Have at least 8 characters

• Combine letters, numbers and special characters in the same password

• Not found in dictionary

• Not the name of a command line

• Not a person’s name

• Not the name of the logged in user

• Not the name of the computer

• Change passwords regularly, significantly different from previous passwords

• Contains or begins with a space character (SPACE key aka spacebar)

• Start with the character $ or @

To have a secure password, we must also keep in mind:

• Do not share your password with anyone.

• Each website should have a separate password so as not to leak information stored in different websites.

The stronger the password, the higher the protection, so how to create a password that is both strong and easy to remember? Here are the steps to create a strong password and increase the security of your account:

Step 1: Create a strong password

Meet the password requirements

You can combine any letters, numbers, and symbols (ASCII characters only) to create a password. However, you cannot use accents and accented characters.You also may not use:

Follow the tips for creating strong passwords

+ Use a different password for each of your important accounts, like email accounts and online banking accounts.

+ Using the same password for important accounts is risky. If someone gets hold of the password you use for an account, they can access your email, address, and even your money.

+ Avoid creating passwords from information that others may know or can easily find out. Eg:

• Your nickname or initials

• An important birthday or year….

• Clear words and phrases like “matkhau” or “truycap”

• Character strings like “abcd” or “1234”….
