Not Choosing Strong Passwords
The most basic password advice available is to choose a good one. But for some users, what separates a good password from a poor one may still be confusing. With that in mind, here are some password tips to help you avoid the worst blunders.
- Don’t use “password1234,” “mypassword” or anything that’s easy to guess.
- Use a combination of letters, numbers and special characters.
- Opt for longer passwords whenever possible. Shorter passwords, even those that are just random characters, are easier to crack than longer ones.
- The best practice may be “pass phrases” that are easy to remember but longer than a typical password.
