Cybercriminals are hacking both individuals and corporations every minute of every day. One area they love is cracking passwords.
Here are a few tips from Dashlane to avoid making the worst password mistakes:
Use different passwords for every account
Reusing the same password across all your accounts is a lot like putting all your eggs in one basket. Once a hacker has the password, they have access to all your accounts.
Turn on two-factor authentication (2FA)
This provides an extra layer of security by verifying identity using two of three possible identifiers – a password or PIN along with facial recognition or fingerprints.
Get a password manager
Here is an ideal way to safely and conveniently manage complicated and unique passwords for an unlimited number of accounts.
Take the time to review and to update all your passwords. Then call us about identity theft protection just in case a hack occurs.
