WAers Need To Know This For Safety Online
The only requirements most of the time for a password is to be at least eight characters. Longer password is much better and it is very effective and strong if it has a combination of capital and small letters, numbers, and special characters found on the keyboard's top-row numbers. Here is why:
- if you use a lower case letters for the 1st character, hackers are only concerned about 26 choices to crack it
- adding a capital letter as an option will add another 26 choices
- adding digits will add another 10 choices
- adding symbols will add another 32 choices
Cracking password with only 26 options versus 94 options multiplied by at least eight characters, your password will not be easy to crack by cyber criminals.
Be careful also where you are saving your password. Have a small notebook handy and keep it in a well secured place in the house.
Hope you will be taken care of this.
