Happy Computing Tip #135

Today, we have so many accounts to keep up with. We have our email accounts, bank accounts, Netflix account, Instagram, the list goes on and on. This is why it’s so tempting to reuse the same password for everything. However, the hackers know that people re-use common, easy passwords for their logins. This is why creating strong and unique passwords is essential to protect your sensitive information.

4 Steps to Using Better Passwords

1. Use a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Avoid common words or easily guessed information.

2. Make passwords at least 12 characters long. It increases their complexity and makes it harder to crack.

3. Use two-factor authentication (2FA). This is a simple and powerful tool. Get this extra layer of security.

4. Too many passwords to remember? Use a reliable password manager. This makes password management so much easier! (Note: Don’t trust just any password manager, some companies have been hacked. Give us a call if you need help finding a secure one!)
