Protect your passwords

Hackers may try to figure out your passwords to gain access to your personal and/or work-related information. Incorporate these tactics in order to make it harder for them to break your passwords:

  • Keep passwords in a secure place and do not share them on the Internet, over e-mail, or on the phone.
  • Use passwords that have at least eight characters in length and include numbers or symbols. The longer the password, the tougher it is to break.
  • Don’t use your personal information, especially information shared on a social networking site like Facebook, or your login name as a password.
  • Change your passwords on a regular basis. A best practice is every 90 days.
  • Don’t use the same password for each online account you access.
