For security reasons you must change your passwords frequently.
Below we provide interesting information about how to create strong and secure passwords for your applications.
1. For a strong and secure password, you must have:
- Numbers, letters and combine uppercase and lowercase.
- The length must be greater than seven characters. The greater the length, the most difficult to guess it.
- It should not be generated with numbers and / or letters that are adjacent on the keyboard. (Examples of bad passwords are: 123456, 1q2w3e or 123QWEasd).
- The password should not contain information that is easy to guess or personal information such as birthdays, children names, etc.
- It should not contain existing words in any language. Dictionary attacks try these words to find out your passwords.
2. Best practices
- Never use the same password on multiple sites, especially if services are “high risk”, such as banking or shopping services.
- Never click on emails that ask you to change your password, instead go directly to the service page.
- The password is private, not write it down along the side of the computer.
- You must always change the default passwords given with your new devices or for online services.
- Please do not store your passwords in the browser, specially for critical services. Your memmory is the best place to store them.
