- Make passwords lengthy and complex – The more characters, special symbols, and case variations used, the better!
- Use unique passwords – Using the same password across services could put all of your different accounts at risk if your credentials are ever involved in a data breach or leak
- Make passwords unpredictable – Simple words, phrases, or keyboard patterns (ie. “password123” or “qwertyasdfgh”) can make it easier for someone to guess your account password
We also recommend that you:
- Use a password manager – Password managers can safely store, keep track of, and even generate passwords for you
- Make your sign in details confidential – Keeping your sign in details private can help ensure you’re the only one with access to use your account
Decline to let browsers on public or shared devices remember your credentials – Letting a browser remember your credentials on a public or shared device makes accessing your account possible for anyone else that uses the same device
