Need Help Choosing and Remembering Your Passwords?

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

Your password may be your only defense against fraud in protecting your important personal information in your online accounts.


Proper Password Policies

Passwords need to be strong, at least 8 characters long and include upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.

You should always use a unique password for each online account e.g. Ebay, Amazon, Gmail, etc.

Change your passwords regularly – at least every 3 months.

Your passwords should be backed up frequently and stored in a safe location but not ‘in the cloud’.

A Password Manager can help you navigate your way through all of the complexities of following proper password policies.


Benefits of using a Password Manager


Password Managers remember your passwords for you so you don’t need to.

You will no longer need post-it notes, scraps of paper, long written lists, documents or spreadsheets to store your passwords.

Strong and unique passwords can be generated for each Web site so that you do not have to think of your own.

Your Password Manager can automatically fill in your login information at Web sites which allows you to save time and help avoid mistakes.

Expiry dates can be set for each password so that you are reminded that it should be changed.

Your data will be encrypted and only the Master Password will unlock the Password Manager.

The only password that you will have to remember is the strong Master Password that you choose.
