How to strengthen your passwords
Wednesday - 10/13/2010, 4:17pm EDT
A new Webroot survey found that four out of ten people have shared passwords with at least one person in the past year. Half of the 2,500 people surveyed say they have used the same password to log into multiple websites.
These are just a few of the poor password practices that leave users exposed to cyber attacks.
InfoSecurity reports younger people are more likely to use poor password security than older people.
There are some easy solutions:
- Never save your passwords on your browsers.
- Don't share your passwords.
- Make sure your passwords are complex not just significant dates.
