Passwords can be a pain. But they serve as your lock and key for all your digital information and having weak passwords makes you an easy target.
Here are some tips for creating strong passwords:
Passwords should use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols. Don't give someone easy access.
1. Use a password that is at least eight characters in length.
2. Don't use your name or email address in the password, or common words. That's an easy place for hackers to start.
3. Change the password every 90 days.
4. Consider using two-factor authentication for added security. Having a second security component increases the chance a hacker won't get access.
