Tips

Passwords are the first line of defense when it comes to protecting our online identity, so it's really important to avoid using passwords that a cybercriminal could guess easily. Here are five key things to bear in mind when creating passwords.

1 Don’t include obvious things like your name, date of birth, or spouse's name - this is as bad as leaving your house key under the doormat!
2 Don’t use real words, even written backwards: these can be cracked in seconds.
3 Make them at least 15 characters long and use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols.
4 The most commonly used passwords are patterns on the keyboard ('qwerty', '123456'), people's first names, the F-word and 'Password' - these are as bad as leaving your front door open!
5 Don't 'recycle' them. If you do, and one account is compromised, all your accounts are at risk!
6 The easiest way to accomplish all of this would be using a password manager.
