Transcript

  • 1. 10 Online Passwords to Avoid
  • 2. Don’t Let a Bad Password Cripple You
    Don’t let one bad, repetitive (used among multiple accounts) password lead to someone hacking into many accounts
    Differentiate passwords between accounts (especially social vs. sensitive personal ones i.e. online banking)
    One strong password is better than several weak ones
  • 3. Don’t Make Your Password Any of These…
    Your partner, child, or pet’s name, possibly followed by a 0 or 1
    The last 4 digits of your social security number
    123 or 1234 or 123456
    “Password”
    Your city, college, or sports team name
  • 4. …Or These
    6. Date of birth – yours, your partner’s or your child’s
    7. “God”
    8.“Letmein”
    9. “Money”
    10. “Love”
  • 5. So, Have You Used These?
    About a fifth of you are probably realizing you use these types of passwords
    Don’t worry, we all do at some point
    If this is the case, change your passwords ASAP
    If you’ve been using a generally weak password, change them fast
  • 6. Do You Have a Backup Plan?
    Whether it’s before, during, or after changing your password, also establish a really good backup plan
    Backups prevent against any single point of failure including:
    Accidental deletion
    Account hack
    Server downtime
    Missing documents during eDiscovery
