Password Security

Would you give a stranger access to your bank account or social media account? No? How about access to your home wifi, personal computer, phone, or security cameras? Of course not! This is a no brainer!

But, without strong passwords and thoughtful password handling you are inviting and sharing your accounts and devices with strangers. 

Tips for safer passwords and accounts:

  • don’t share accounts with friends or family
  • use strong passwords (8 or more characters, use symbols, numbers, mix upper and lower characters, and use nothing found in a dictionary
  • use 2 factor authentication (banks, social media platforms, and email account providers all support 2FA)
  • use a password safe
  • use unique passwords for each site and service
