Recently I have started to use a new password manager and got asked why I did not just use the same password across all of my accounts online. And this lead to me thinking that people as a rule don’t know effective and secure practice to follow when using online accounts and passwords.
Firstly you should always use a different password for each of your online accounts, this could be having one password with many variations such as different letters or symbols within it. This is necessary these days as it only takes one of the platforms you use to get hacked and you could potentially lose access to all of your accounts.
So Here Are Some Good Password Practice
And hopefully if you follow some of the steps listed above you should be able to maximize your online security. As it is commonly known that the weakest point in most security systems is the human element. And that is because a lot of people have poor security knowledge or training. And this can be down to a number of thing such as age or use case.
But again hopefully this helps and you can share it with your friends and colleague to again increase everyone online safety.
I am a Digital Forensics & Ethical Hacking student in my final year of University. I find the topic of cyber security fascinating and enjoyable. Other interest include PC hardware, gaming and a small amount of programming.
