Do You Know The Keys To Creating A Strong Password?

Passwords

A password unlocks a kingdom of information — yet people often make themselves vulnerable to cyber attack by using weak passwords.

To create better passwords, use these password safety tips:

  • Use at least 12 upper and lowercase letters, symbols and special characters
  • Make an acronym out of a memorable sentence: My 1st son was born at Atlanta Hospital at 2:30pm= M1swb@AH@2:30pm
  • Don’t use personal information easily found from a Google search or social media
  • Don’t store your passwords in a Word document or on paper
  • Use different passwords for each account
  • Never share your password
  • Avoid logging into accounts on public computers or unsecured WiFi

If you believe your password has been compromised, change your password right away. If you need help, contact EarthLink Support.
