Passwords are often the only thing keeping your personal information safe online. Yet, according to the National Cyber Security Alliance, less than half of home computer users follow standard security recommendations:
- 37% never change their passwords while only 25% change them quarterly
- 40% do not use unique passwords for each online account
If you’re worried you’ll never remember a unique password for each account, try developing a system using a short phrase. Use the same system for each account but vary it slightly.
“time to check email”
“tiMe To cHeck EmAil”
“tiM3 To cHec4 EmAi1”
