How strong are your passwords?

February 19th, 2010

Just about everyone uses the Internet in some form or fashion.  Whether you are using online banking, paying bills, email, or social media sites like facebook and Twitter, an often overlooked security threat is password vulnerability. One main cause of Internet security breaches are weak passwords, so having a strong password for the sites you access is very important to protect your personal information from hackers.  Some tips in choosing a strong password are:

  • Avoid common words and phrases
  • Do  not use dates, numbers or names that could be easily tied to you
  • Use both upper and lower case letters along with numbers and symbols

 Microsoft offers a free online tool to check your password strength: https://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/passwords/checker.aspx
