Everything that has become digital has also turned vulnerable to people that want to exploit data available in digital format. Hackers are a threat to everyone using smartphones and the Internet and to ensure we are safe most of the things are password protected.
Be it social media account or bank account even electronic devices have password protection. Even with a password, it’s not so obvious that your data is safe as the password is just a set of characters that you choose. If it’s easy to guess the password is as good as it not being there. To make sure your password is good enough and strong as they say it should be made with keeping few things in mind.
Here are a few tips that can help you make a strong password to protect your data:
Don’t use personal information
Personal information such as the name of family members, phone numbers, favorite food colors, etc things is easy to guess. Even by stalking your social media such things can be guessed so it’s best if you avoid such simple things as a password.
Don’t use easy to guess random things
Ascending or descending numbers and set of alphabets or your username etc should not be used. These things might be random but aimlessly guessed things are possible to be guessed by others as well. Keep your mind straight while setting a password that isn’t something obvious.
Don’t use repeated passwords
While putting a new password it’s best not to use old passwords. Your old password might be shared by you at times and using it again gives access to anyone who knows your old password.
Use a different set of characters
While making a new password use characters that include numbers, alphabets, and even symbols if you can remember it well. Such a set of characters is hard to guess and is the best way to make a strong password that is not random and obvious to anyone who knows you.
