It’s World Password Day. Generate a fresh one.

Protect your Digital Life

Change your Passwords.  Change them frequently.  Shield your accounts from hackers with strong secure passwords.  Make your passwords easy to remember and hard to guess.  Do not use birthdays, family member names, etc.  Never share your passwords.

Tips for Strong passwords:

Avoid using words from the dictionary.  Make up your own words instead.

Make sure it has a minimum of 8 characters and preferably 12 or more.

Use symbols, both upper and lower case as well as spaces, with two words whenever possible.

Add 2-step verification anywhere it is permitted.  2-step verification is an extra security layer requiring code from another location.  Yes, it is annoying.  But having your accounts hacked or identity stolen will be much worse.  Enable it.
