The best online safety practices
Key points to create a strong password
Never use the same password, security question or answer for multiple accounts.
Keep your passwords long and complex – a combination of min. 16 characters, numbers, uppercase, lowercase and symbols is the safest bet.
Don’t go with something easy – the name of your cat/husband/wife/sister/grandfather is an unsafe password choice.
Stay away from anything identifying you with where you live, like:
- home addresses;
- postal codes;
- ID numbers;
- your SSN (yes, people make that mistake!).
The best password doesn’t look like any word you could find in the dictionary:
- a bad password is MasterCryptoChemist555
- a good password is 9fad4!b37660f6fa^2cf4b41#dd4628e
- second factor authentication 2FA (soon)
- third factor authentication 3FA (soon)
- … (soon)
