Tips for Strong Passwords

Usually, when accounts get hacked, it’s when a given password is too weak. Hackers use an algorithm where they apply different kinds of information about you until they find one that clicks. That is why it’s important to keep these things in mind while making a password:

  • Try not to use solely birthdays, names (especially yours), or your username as your password. This information is very easy to guess, and if you want to keep your privacy and account safe, it’s better to stray far from these decisions.
  • Make a strong password. A good, strong password includes both capital and lowercase letters, numbers, special characters (such as @ and !), and are at least 6 characters long.

The key is having a unique password and one that you don’t use for other accounts.
