Protect Your Passwords
« on: October 08, 2015, 02:01:23 PM »
Here are a few principles for creating strong passwords and keeping them safe:

   The longer the password, the tougher it is to crack.  Use at least 10 characters; 12 is ideal for most home users.
   Mix letters, numbers, and special characters.  Try to be unpredictable – don’t use your name, birthdate, or common words.
   Don’t use the same password for many accounts.  If it’s stolen from you – or from one of the companies with which you do business – it can be used to take over all your accounts.
   Don’t share passwords on the phone, in texts or by email.  Legitimate companies will not send you messages asking for your password.  If you get such a message, it’s probably a scam.
   Keep your passwords in a secure place, out of plain sight.

Its too important to protect the passwords. But it seems difficult to keep in mind all the passwords where one person/employee may have at least 10 accounts.
