Secure yourself with Secure Password, some tips
One of the ways to help others is to educate everyone about staying safe on the Internet. So let’s make sure everyone knows about secure passwords and the keys to our digital empire, passwords should be closely cosseted. Password is nothing but all a cyber criminal needs to gain access to your account. Passwords are the digital keys to our networks of friends, our work colleagues, and even our banking and payment services. We want to keep our passwords private to protect our personal lives. The most important two passwords are those for your email and social network accounts. The bottom line is that a good password is all that may stand between you and a cyber criminal. There are many ways that hackers can crack your password outside of phishing attempts and spyware.
- One method is by attempting to log on to your account and guessing your password based off of personal information gained from your security questions. This is why it is extremely important not to include any personal information in your passwords.
- Another way that hackers can attempt to gain access to your password is via a password cracker. A password cracker uses brute force by using multiple combinations of characters repeatedly until it gains access to the account. The shorter and less complex your password is, the quicker it can be for the program to come up with the correct combination of characters.
