All you need to know about passwords
Passwords are the keys which grant access to resources. You may require passwords for many purposes: logging in to your online accounts, retrieving e-mail from servers, accessing files, databases, networks, web sites, etc.
The use of passwords goes back to ancient times. Sentries guarding a location would challenge for a password. They would only allow a person in if they knew the password. In modern times, passwords are used to control access to protected computer operating systems, mobile phones, cable TV decoders, automated teller machines, etc. Internet users should be particularly cautious to protect the passwords that grant access to their personal and private information.
Despite the name, there is no need for passwords to be actual words; indeed passwords which are not actual words are harder to guess, but are generally harder for users to remember.
Use the following tips to create a secure password:
- Use eight or more characters to make a long password. Each character that you add to your password increases the protection that it provides many times over.
- Use a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.
- Do not use a word in the dictionary. Foreign words and a combination of two or more words are not safe either.
- Do not associate your password with any identification information, such as your name, birthday, address, etc.
- Avoid your login name. Any part of your name, birthday, social security number, or similar information for your loved ones constitutes a bad password choice.
- Do not use the same password everywhere. If any one of the computers or online systems using this password is compromised, all of your other information protected by that password should be considered compromised as well. It is critical to use different passwords for different systems.
- Avoid sequences or repeated characters. "12345678," "222222," "abcdefg," or adjacent letters on your keyboard do not help make secure passwords.
- Change your passwords periodically to increase security.
In summary, passwords are a common form of authentication and are often the only barrier between a user and your personal information. There are several programs attackers can use to help guess or "crack" passwords, but by choosing good passwords and keeping them confidential, you can make it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access your information.
