A recent campaign group (Get Safe Online) has mentioned that we leave ourselves very vulnerable to identity frauds because of our passwords.
Passwords are basically problematic. If you decide to use an easy one then just remember that they are easy to crack also by the cyber thugs. How to choose a password forms the core of this topic.
How to choose a password that can be safe?
1. Try to mix letters, numbers and punctuations. Make the passwords as long as possible.
2. Do not use easy to remember passwords like son or daughter’s name, partner’s name or a pet’s name.
3. Never use a word that is in the dictionary. Online fraudsters have developed softwares and programs to crack these passwords.
4. Do not use consecutive letters on a standard QWERTY keyboard.
