We need to create a password to make every transaction on the Web, from checking email, online accounts to online banking. And while it’s simpler to use short, easy-to-remember passwords, it can also pose a serious risk to our online security. To protect ourselves and our information, we will use passwords that are long, strong, and difficult for others to guess while keeping them relatively easy for us to remember.
Tips for creating strong passwords:
• Never use personal information such as your name, date of birth, username or email address. This type of information is usually made publicly available, making it easier for someone to guess your password. You can use special hobbies, special events such as graduation day, first day of work…
• Use longer passwords. Your password must be at least eight characters long, even longer.
• Do not use the same password for each account. If someone discovers your password for one account, all your other accounts will be vulnerable.
• Try to include numbers, symbols, and both upper and lower case letters.
