How To Pick A Good Password

What’s the most common password?  You guessed it …” password .”  Obviously this is not the best way to protect yourself against hackers and online thieves. But even if you don’t use the word “password,” you might be using an equally easy password to decipher.  

    We suggest you DON’T use the following passwords for really important web sites, such as your online banking web site or other financially related sites.   

  •   Your  name or your spouse’s name.  
  •   Your  children’s names.  
  •   Your  pet’s name.  
  •   Your  birth date.  
  •   The  last four digits of your Social Security number.  
  •   Your  phone number.  
  •  Your  address.  
  •  A  series of consecutive numbers, such as “1, 2, 3, 4.”  
  •   A  single word that would appear in a dictionary.  

Your best bet for creating a strong password: Use combinations of letters, numbers, and special characters.
