5 tips for better password security
You probably see articles about the importance of having better password security fairly often–and for good reason. Year after year, cyber security companies report that most computer users are choosing the same weak passwords, with passwords like ‘123456’ and ‘password’ ranking at the top of the list. With the rising threat of cyber crime, information leaks and data breaches, a strong password is your first line of defence. Luckily, most web services are forcing their users to follow best practices by only allowing passwords with pre-set criteria or by analyzing passwords to see if they’re weak, fair or strong. Most services require a password that’s at least 8 characters long and contains an uppercase letter, a number and a symbol. While these requirements are useful, simply changing your password from “password” to “Password1!” doesn’t suddenly make your password much more difficult to crack.
