Picking a Strong Password
In todays world, using passwords has become an everyday occurrence for most people. You username and password is sometimes the only line of defence between outsiders and your personal information. Choosing a strong password is essential to prevent hackers from breaking your password and gaining your information.Many people choose simple passwords that are easy to remember, so that they never forget. Passwords such as birthdays, anniversaries, nicknames, pets names are most commonly used. These are the easiest passwords to crack. To create a stronger password try adding capital letters, numbers and special characters to your password. Also don't use the same password for all of the places you login to. That way if a hacker is able to discover your password, they wont be able to access multiple areas with it.
