Dos And Don’ts Of Creating Strong Passwords

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.
