#407 How Good Are Your Passwords?

Since October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, I thought this would be a good time to remind everyone  how easy it is to lose control of your online accounts or even worse your personal identity when you use passwords that are easily hacked.  I’ll bet that most people don’t even know what makes a password “good” and what exactly is good enough?

So in an attempt to increase your awareness of what makes a good password I’d like to invite you to take 2 minutes and check the strength of your passwords. As someone who has been hacked I promise you it is worth it. We’re happy to wait until you get back!

Go Take the Password Test

If you didn’t fare very well, you might want to check out this previous tip on how to create memorable AND secure passwords.

You can make the whole process much easier and even more secure by using a good password manager program.  Personally, I’m a Lastpass fan.
