How to Pick a Better Password

Pick a better password so you won’t have your online email and social media accounts taken over and used by spammers or hackers.

Pick a Pickled Password…

A password for your email account (and other accounts like social media, etc.) should be an unusual word or phrase which you can remember. In the middle of the word, or phrase, stick in a few numbers.

Don’t make it too complicated. You want something you won’t forget.

But, don’t make it too simple. A computer is going to try random words and numbers to try guessing your password. So you don’t want to use a word from the standard dictionary and you don’t want to use numbers like your date of birth or any ID you carry around with you.
