Creating a strong password

One of the simplest ways to raise your security level, is setting a strong password. Below is our suggestions for creating a strong password, as well as some general guidelines.

  1. Switch numbers with letters that look alike
  2. Create a password that contains at least 8 characters
  3. Mix uppercase and lowercase letters
  4. Do not use a name or a word found in a dictionary
  5. Do not use a birthday date or any other public accessible information
  6. Use different passwords for everything
  7. Use special characters, such as '!', '%' and '&'

A fun way to check the strength of the password, is by trying it here:
howsecureismypassword.net

The website validates your password and estimates how long time it will take for a computer to break it. The higher amount of time it takes, the better password.
