As we all know, we're encouraged to generate strong and unique passwords for the websites we login to. We often hear people say that they can't remember these passwords or they lose them or they want to create the same password for multiple sites. This is not a good practice and we want to help you create and manage passwords that are unique and secure for every website that you use.
The Importance of a Strong Password
It is extremly important to generate a strong and unique password for each and every website that you login to as well as each email account that you have. If you create a single password to use with multiple sites and you're hacked, the hackers can potentially access your other accounts using this same password. Every year, a list is published of the weakest and most commonly used passwords which can be found here: Weak Password List. Please make sure you're not using any password on this list!
Take a moment and see if any of your accounts have been compromised in a data breach. You may be surprised.
