Secure passwords


Description

Protecting your password is essential to ensure the security of your devices and data, whether they are documents, e-mails, photos, conversations, or other data.  Your passwords ensure that only you have access to your data. If a person with bad intentions has access to your passwords, they might access your profile on social networks and post things pretending to be you. Or they can gain access to confidential documents belonging to you or your company.
Be careful when creating your passwords. Avoid using personal data that can be obtained on social networks and Web pages, keyboard sequences such as “123456” or “qwerty," and well-known terms such as song titles, soccer teams, movie characters. 
An ideal password is easy for you to remember, but difficult for other people or computer programs to discover. If you use public data such as a birthday, your last name, or your phone number, the password can be easily discovered. Simple words like the name of your sports team, your city, or your favorite TV show character are also bad choices. 
Long phrases, with several words instead of just one, are often easy to remember and very difficult to guess. They are usually great passwords.
You can also include random numbers, and a high number of different types of characters (uppercase, lowercase and special characters).
