Always create unique passwords for your online accounts. Never share your password. Create passwords that contain lowercase letters, capital letter, numbers and special characters. Every additional character strengthens a password.
Never share your password over the phone, in text, by email, or in person. The longer the password, the harder it is to crack.
Avoid using obvious passwords such as
- Your name
- Family member names
- Pets names
Choose a password you can remember without writing it down. If you do choose to write it down, be sure to store it in a secure location.
