Online Safety Guidelines for Strong Passwords
Quick tips for creating and saving your online passwords and making them strong.
Make Passwords Long
Use passwords longer than six characters when possible. Especially with most characters being from the Alphabet.
Don’t Use Personal Information
Avoid using demographics, birthdates or names from your loved ones. Including pets.
Change Passwords Often
Make sure to review your passwords and change them frequently. Such as quarterly. But no longer than every 6 months.
Password Manager Apps
Password management apps can keep track. Use caution. If the PW Manager was hacked, you have to change all your PW’s and worry about ID theft.
Don’t Recycle Passwords
Don’t use the same password for all of your accounts. Hackers count on the same passwords.
Use uppercase, lowercase, characters, and numbers. Use symbols such as !@#$%&*.
