  1. 12 Password Best Practices




In honor of World Password Day, we’re bringing you a week of best practices for password security.

Can you guess the least secure way to store your password?

A password management tool is a far more secure alternative. With a password manager, you can easily create and store strong passwords without the stress of having to remember them.

Want to learn a trick for creating strong passwords?

Make a password that is related to either a new habit you want to start or a motivational quote. “Drink more water,” for example, can be represented as dr1nk+W4teR, and “Keep rocking” as kp_r0cK1NG!

Still capitalizing the first letter of your passwords?

AND using the exclamation mark at the end as your special character?

This is a common combination that makes it easier for cybercriminals to hack your credentials.

What do you think?

The infamous ‘Temp123!’ is usually used as the first temporary password for new hires. Initial + last name combinations are also quite popular.

People often forget to change their temporary passwords and continue to use them for an extended period of time, putting their companies’ data at risk.

Even if you were given a not-so-obvious temporary password, make sure to change it immediately to something that only you know. Make passwords strong and keep them safe.

It’s not difficult to understand why we’d want to save our passwords, bank details, and credit card information in our browsers.

Have you ever saved your passwords or sensitive information to your browser before?
