What is a strong password?
A strong password is a password that utilizes a combination of letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, and symbols- thus making the password near impossible to guess or be the target of a brute force hack.
Why do I need a strong password?
Using a strong password significantly increases your account security. Many social media, email, and financial websites now require a strong password for enhanced user security.
What are the requirements of a strong password?
Requirements will differ by website. As a rule of thumb, many will suggest a minimum of 8 characters with at least one uppercase letter, one number, and one symbol.
How often should I change my strong password?
The rule of thumb is every six months to one year. Try to stay away from using the same password on multiple websites. This way, if one account is comprimised the others will still be safe.
