By now you’ve probably read about the international crime ring that stole 1.2 billion user names and passwords. Whether or not you were affected, it serves as a great reminder to create secure passwords and change them regularly. Your good name, your money and your credit rating are riding on it!
What makes a safe password? Generally, the most secure passwords use a combination of numbers, letters and symbols (such as exclamation points). Web experts say you should avoid words or numbers that could be easily guessed, such as your name, your street or your birthday. The more “random” the password, the more secure it is. Most importantly, you should use a different password for every account.
