Setting and changing to a Strong Password

Setting a secure password doesn't have to be tricky. 

But there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Use a mixture of uppercase and lowercase letter.
  • Use special characters such as ",!'.; 
  • Use a mixture of letters and numbers.
  • Make your password long.
  • Consider using the number 0 instead of the letter O and @ instead of the letter a.
  • Don't share your password with anyone. 
  • Change your passwords roughly once every 3 months should be good. 
  • Don't use the same password for everything - It can be difficult to remember a lot of different passwords. As a minimum make sure the passwords you use for your online banking and email are unique from your other passwords. 
  • Use a password manager and keep the password for that manager unique.
