Password Management & Safety Tips
We’ve all been there. The moment you desperately need to access an online account but can’t remember your password. It can be a frustrating experience for yourself and others, but have hope! We have some password tips and suggestions to help put your mind at ease.
Password security is essential because it helps keep your personal information and data safe from unauthorized access. A strong and unique password makes it more difficult for hackers to gain access to your accounts, which can prevent identity theft and other types of cybercrime. It is recommended to use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols to create a strong password and to avoid using the same password for multiple accounts.
Here are a few tips to consider when creating and managing passwords:
- Use a strong and unique password for each account.
- Avoid using personal information in your passwords.
- Make sure your password is at least 12 characters long.
- Include a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols in your password.
- Consider using a password manager to generate and store strong passwords.
- Enable two-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.
- Regularly update your passwords, especially for sensitive accounts.
- Never share your passwords with anyone.
There are several great password keepers available, including LastPass, 1Password, and Dashlane. It is recommended to research each one to determine which best fits your needs, as they all have slightly different features and pricing options.
