Nowdays, you have so many accounts and passwords it's hard to remember them all. Or, even worse, you use the same one for each website, which means all of your information is at risk.
Hackers know that we are bad at creating passwords, are creatures of habit - which means it only takes one compromised website login to gain access to many others. And while these websites may not contain financial data, they will contain data which will make it easier to replicate your identity.
Here's what you need to do to make your password strong:
- Have a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, symbols, and never put two of them in a row
- Use a pass 'phrase' instead of code; example: [email protected]$c0ol! (Oxford Bank is cool)
