Password Best Practices

  • Never reveal your passwords to others
  • Change your password at least twice a year
  • For each account, use a separate password. In this way, even if one account gets hacked, others would not be at risk
  • Multi-factor authentication should be used (MFA). Keep in mind that even the strongest passwords have their limitations. Multi-Factor Authentication provides essential additional security layers 
  • Complexity loses out to length. The more characters in a password, the better. If at all feasible, use at least 16 characters
  • Make passwords that are both difficult to guess and simple to remember
  • Use sentences or phrases to make passwords easier to remember “Breadandbutteryum,” for example. Some systems even allow you to utilize spaces, such as “bread and butter yum.”
    Single words, or words preceded or followed by a single number, should be avoided (e.g. Password1). Hackers will guess your password using word dictionaries and widely used passwords
    Don’t use birthdays, children’s or pet’s names, car model, or other personal information in your password that others may know about you or that you’ve shared on social media. Hackers will be able to discover it if your buddies can.
    Complexity is still important. Include higher and lower case letters, digits, and special characters to add complexity.
