Change Passwords to Protect Yourself

Most of us collect too many passwords to remember.

But if you’re concerned about identity theft or have already experienced an online security breach, you know it’s a must to change passwords routinely to thwart hackers.

Here are the three best moves to make your passwords safer:

1) Use a password with one uppercase letter, three numbers and a symbol, because it makes it harder to break. So forget your birthday, address or that easy-to-remember code word.

2) Don’t use the same password for everything. Easy access for you….and for hackers too.

3) Try a password management system, which is storage for all your passwords for credit cards, bank accounts, social media sites in one place. Some are free and others have a fee.

For a nominal fee, use one like Wallet, www.agilebits.com or Keeper Password Manager at the Google Store. Find free ones at: www.roboform.com, www.lastpass.com, www.dashlane.com, or www.keepass.info.
