Chances are, if you use an electronic device for any reason, you’ve gone through the process of creating a password. We’d be willing to bet that you have multiple passwords that you’re in charge of remembering, and that can be a hassle. But the truth is, strong password management is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cyberattacks.

Here are some tips on making sure you’re creating passwords that keep you and your personal information safe and secure. Passwords that have multiple characters and that are longer in length tend to be the strongest. Create a unique password for each account. This reduces the risk of fraudsters having access to several of your personal accounts if they obtain one of your passwords. Never use public computers to log into your online accounts. Keep your passwords confidential. You should never share them with anyone.

These simple steps can go a long way in keeping your personal information protected.
