Security Tips

World Password Day

Happy World Password Day!

Today is all about protecting your online identity. In a world where digital security is more important than ever, it’s crucial to have strong passwords whenever used in conjunction with other authentication methods, to protect yourself from cyber threats.

Did you know that creating long passwords, with a combination of letters, numbers, symbols (and no personal information!) can make your passwords more secure?

Avoid reusing same passwords across different accounts, review your passwords and make sure each account has a unique password. This can prevent hackers from accessing multiple accounts if one password is compromised.

Using a reliable password manager is also a great way to create and manage strong passwords for multiple accounts. It can generate complex passwords that are difficult to guess and store them securely.

Spread the word about World Password Day! Take steps to protect your online accounts. Encourage friends and family to create strong passwords, so that together, we can raise awareness about online security and help make the internet a safer place.
