What can I do to ensure that I have a secure password?
There are several ways to make sure that you have a strong password. Below are just a few tips:
The longer a password is, the better. Use at least 16 characters whenever possible.
- Complexity Counts
To increase complexity, include upper and lower case letters, as well as numbers and special characters. A password should use at least 3 of these choices.
- Make Passwords That Are Hard To Guess but Easy to Remember
To make passwords easier to remember, use sentences or phrases.
Avoid single words, or a word proceeded or followed by a single number. (i.e. Password1).
Don’t use information in your password that others might know about you or that’s in your social media (i.e. birthdays, children’s or pet’s names, car model, etc.)
