Choose strong passwords and keep them safe
Passwords are a fact of life on the internet today; we use
them for everything from ordering flowers and online
banking to logging into our favorite airline web site to see
how many miles we have accumulated. The following tips can
help make your online experiences secure:
• Selecting a password that cannot be easily guessed is the
first step toward keeping passwords secure and out of the
wrong hands. Strong passwords have eight characters or
more and use a combination of letters, numbers and
symbols (e.g., # $ % ! ?). Avoid using any of the following
as your password: your login name, anything based on
your personal information such as your last name, and
words that can be found in the dictionary, especially
"password."
passwords for protecting activities like online banking.
• Keep your passwords in a safe place and try not to use the
same password for every service you use online.
• Change passwords on a regular basis, at least every 90
days. This can limit the damage caused by someone who
has already gained access to your account. If you notice
something suspicious with one of your online accounts,
one of the first steps you can take is to change your
password.
Protect your personal information
Exercise caution when sharing personal information such as
