Website Security: Passwords

Posted on September 15, 2020 at 2:24 pm

Choosing a password when creating a new account is always a daunting task. No one ever knows what to choose. You want it to be something that is easy to remember, yet not easy to guess. It also has to fit in with all the guidelines which websites are now putting in place. But why is it so important to have a strong password? Basically, your password is what protects all of your personal data that is stored on that website. Using a strong password gives your data maximum security. You should never use the same password for multiple websites, this is because it will be easier to gain access to all of your accounts if the passwords are the same. I would suggest using a password generator to set your passwords. Jot these down along with the website and username into a notebook so you will not forget them.
