Time To Change Your Passwords

 

Passwords are easier than ever to crack. Do yourself a favor and change your passwords atleast once a year. You should never use the same password for multiple accounts. We reccomend having a password with a minimum of 12 characters long.

To create a unique and secure password consider using these steps:

1) Start by coming up with characters to use for the first part of your password.

We reccomend that you use a random string generator to come up with five random characters:

If you prefer to come up with something yourself, you can use a name, place, or even a commonly used word (board or jungle)

2) Pick five unique numbers, again we reccomend you use a random number generated:

But you can also come up with something yourself like a year or a number that means something to you.

3) Come up with at least two different symbols to use (Examples: ! @ # $ % & *)

4) Now  combine your three parts together and change one of your characters to a capital letter
