Best Practices for Strong Passwords
We all got a lot of sensitive data stored on our online accounts that we want to keep secure. However, most of it is protected by pretty weak passwords. Creating a really strong password should do the job. But, as we all know, it’s a fine line between choosing a password that no one else will be able to guess and one that’s easy for you to remember.
A strong password is one you can’t guess or crack using a brute force attack. Hackers use computers to try various combinations of letters, numbers, and symbols in search of the right password. Modern computers can crack short passwords consisting of only letters and numbers in mere moments.
As such, strong passwords consist of a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special symbols, such as punctuation. They should be at least 12 characters long, although we’d recommend going for one that’s even longer.
