A good password is a strong, unique, and unpredictable combination of characters that is difficult for others to guess or crack. A good password should:
- Be long: The longer the password, the stronger it is. Aim for a password that is at least 12 characters long.
- Include a mix of characters: Use a mix of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. The more character types you use, the stronger your password will be.
- Avoid common words or phrases: Avoid using common words or phrases, as these can be easily guessed or cracked.
- Be unique: Don't use the same password for multiple accounts. If a password is compromised for one account, the attacker will have access to all of your accounts if you use the same password for each one.
- Avoid personal information: Don't use personal information, such as your name, date of birth, or address, as part of your password.
- Update regularly: Regularly update your passwords to stay ahead of attackers who may have obtained your password through previous data breaches.
