Posted on December 15, 2022 at 3:07 pm

Whenever you create an online account, you will find that you need to choose a password. Most sites have a rating system where it will tell you if the password you have chosen is weak, moderate or strong. Ideally, you always want your password to be strong as this will provide you with the most protection.

Most people seem to think they should have the same password for every website, possibly with slight changes, for example, different capital letters, numbers or punctuation. But this is not the best thing you can do. Ideally, you want to have different passwords everywhere, this way if someone does happen to find your email and password combination for one site, they will find this does not work on any other site, as you have been security aware.

It is also a great idea to update and change your passwords every so often. This way it is less likely for hackers to discover your password and gain access to your account this way.
