Think your password is safe?

Recently I’ve had people getting in touch with regards to e-mail accounts potentially being hacked. It goes without saying that you shouldn’t share your password with other people but there are some other things you should keep in mind when creating or changing your password. I found this video which should hopefully be useful, but there are a couple of other tips I would advise. 1. Use phrases rather than words, it’s much more difficult to figure out 2 words than one and increasing the overall length makes “brute force” attacks take MUCH longer 2. Use numbers within your words rather than simply tagging them on the end, we’ve all seen numbers used as letters but as well as that you can always use other characters. So go and #@&$ your password up!
