Unit 4- Question 2

A strong password is essential when it comes to your online security. Weak passwords put personal information at risk. Tips for good passwords:

  1. Longer is better. At least 16 characters is best. At that point, you don’t have to worry so much about password-cracking software.
  2. You should change passwords right away at any hint of compromise.
  3. Keep your details off social media. The more personal details you post, the more cybercriminals know about you.
  4. 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.
