The following are tips on how to create a strong password for a more secure account:
- Your password should have at least 8-12 characters. The longer and more complex your password is, the harder it is for others to guess it.
- Include special characters in your password. Numbers, symbols, uppercase letters, and lowercase letters help make your password more unique.
- Mix up symbols and numbers with letters. A password that has different numbers, symbols, and letters mixed up is a password that is difficult for hackers to crack.
- Do not use accessible information, such as your name, birthday, and address, as passwords. By doing so, you make your passwords less predictable and impossible to guess. If you are required to choose security questions and answers when creating an online account, select ones that are not easily discoverable in your social media accounts.
- Do not use the same password for all your accounts. If someone gets your password for one account, they could easily access all your other accounts.
- Do not reuse old passwords. Reusing the passwords that you have already used before creates a security flaw and gives hackers more opportunities to access your account. For this reason, you must use new passwords every time you change.
