It’s World Password Day! Take a few moments today to update your passwords or turn on two-factor authentication for all your important accounts.
I’ve made a list of my top 5 passwords to update:
1) Bank Accounts
2) Social Media Accounts
3) Email Accounts
4) Online Shopping Sites (such as Amazon)
5) Cloud Storage Accounts
When changing your passwords, keep these strong password tips in mind:
1) Use at least 12 characters
2) Use a combination of numbers, symbols and upper + lowercase letters
3) Consider using a phrase that will be easy for you to remember, but not easy for others to guess, such as: Iambooking100Weddingsin2019! (might as well throw in a positive affirmation while we’re at it!)
If you hate changing passwords because it’s hard to keep track of them, you might like to try a password manager. I use LastPass to help keep track of mine.
