A strong password is essential when it comes to your online security. Weak passwords put personal information at risk. Tips for good passwords:
- Longer is better. At least 16 characters is best. At that point, you don’t have to worry so much about password-cracking software.
- You should change passwords right away at any hint of compromise.
- Keep your details off social media. The more personal details you post, the more cybercriminals know about you.
- Always, always use 2FA. If your password does get compromised, a second layer of protection will go a long way toward protecting you.Two-factor authentication, also called multifactor authentication, is being used by a growing number of sites and requires someone trying to access your account to also enter a second form of ID.
