Some abstracts of password protection

  • Don't rely on Windows passwords to protect your information.They are easily broken.
  • Create passwords which are 8 characters or longer.You can also use a short sentence as your password.
  • It is better to write down you passwords and keep them safe, than to have a short, easy to guess password.
  • Use numbers, small letters, capitals and symbols in your password.
  • Never use the same password twice
  • Do not use passwords which can be directly related or linked to your personal life or interests.
  • Do not share or tell anyone your important passwords.
  • Change your passwords every 3-6 months.
  • Remember that there are many programs available free on the Internet, which will identify your Windows password, wireless network encryption and just about any other type of computer password you may have.
