Password Security Tips

Keep Your Password Secure

Internet criminals have become more sophisticated with their attempts to gain access to accounts. Make sure whenever you enter any password, that you are entering the password on the website that requires the password. Do not enter your password in emails, links from emails, or in places that you do not regularly expect to authenticate.

Do Not Give Out Your Passwords

It seems obvious, but the best practice is not to share your passwords with your friends. Several internet surveys report that about 45% of all people use the same password on every site they use. So if you give out your login information for one site, and use the same information for other websites, you have given free access to all of your internet accounts. The best practice is to use a different password for each website you visit.
