Dos And Don’ts Of Creating Strong Passwords

Do: Use a password manager

 

A password manager, like 1password, will remember all your passwords. You’ll only need to create and remember one master password.

 

Don’t: Let your devices remember passwords

 

Keep it where it’s safe from hackers: inside your head!

 

Do: Make it long

 

It’s best if your password is at least 12 characters long.

 

Don’t: Use common passwords

 

Avoid any variation of these commonly used — and commonly hacked — passwords:

  • 123456123456789
  • Passwordadmin
  • 12345678qwerty
  • 1234567111111

 

Do: Mix it up

 

Vary capitalization and types of characters used, switching back and forth from letters to numbers to symbols.
