Securing your digital profile depends heavily on maintaining strong passwords.

It will take a hacker mere minutes to take advantage of your sensitive info with passwords like these!
Steps to effective password protection
Here are 4 steps to stronger password protection (check out our whitepaper for the full list!)
- Use special characters, but separate them. In other words, don’t bunch unique characters (!#@$*) together—space them out to make it harder to guess.
- Don’t store your passwords in your browser
- When you change your password, don’t simply add a letter or number to the old one
- Don’t reuse the same passwords across multiple accounts
