Keeping passwords secure is step one toward making sure you’re not a victim of cybercrime, according to security firm Sophos.
- Make them strong. Make sure passwords are 20 to 25 characters.
- Use multicharacter coding. Mix numbers, letters and punctuation.
- Avoid being too personal. Stay away from using your birth date, address, pet’s name, etc.
- Keep them random. Mix up the letters in words instead of spelling out a full word. Also, use different passwords for different websites.
- Take advantage of tools. Use protection and storage tools such as LastPass, Passpack, YubiKey and KeePass to keep your information safe.
