Having a strong password protects you from cybercrime and at the same time you can have a safer online transaction. This will ease your workflow and also have a better and enhanced user-experience with other parties. Today we will share some easy tips on how to create a stronger password so that you prevent yourself from all the cyber security vulnerabilities out there.

  • Length

    Make your passwords with proper length so you can remember easily. We strongly recommend 12 or more characters.

  • Complexity
    Include alphabets, numbers and special characters (punctuation and symbols).
    Eg: k0mpLeXp@55w0rd+@r3=5@43

Make sure you utilize all the keys in your keyboard including small letters and capital letters as well.

  • Variation
    Change your passwords frequently. Set a reminder to remind yourself to change at least once every 3 months. Make it as a habit would be recommended.

Another golden tips is that AVOID creating passwords that use :

  • Dictionary words
  • Sequences or repeated numbers: For eg: 123456, 111111, abcdefg
  • Personal information: Birthday, driver’s license, passport number

And last but not least do not tell or share your password to anyone.
