New Year, New Passwords

Password Keyboard

The security of your online presences should never be taken lightly. We all know how important passwords are to keeping our information safe, but sometimes it is simpler to just take the easy way and reuse passwords. Creating and remembering secure passwords can be a pain - but imagine if you were to have one physical key which opened your car, house, safety deposit box, gym locker, and business. That would be an immense security risk if that key were to be used against you. Reusing passwords for different online services is no different and can put your privacy and financial information at risk.


What Makes A Good Password

The rules that govern what makes a good password are easy to follow. They include:

  • Use at least one of each of the following: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters
  • Remember not to use or base your password on a dictionary word
  • Do not use any complete word, especially a name or location (this greatly reduces the effectiveness of your password)

How Secure Is My Password

How Secure Is My Password is a fun password meter that will give you a quick review of the strength of your password and how long an average computer would take to crack your password. Using this tool, we've seen password strength improve from 10 days to 120 years of computer time to crack a single password.

Password Meter is a more in depth tool that gives you great information on your password strength based on a percentage scale. It provides a whole set of criteria from which to judge your password strength including sequential numbers and letters.


Remember Your Passwords

Password Combination Lock

The hardest part of passwords is remembering them. Try to utilize the phonetic features of online generators such as our own. Memorizing passwords using terms such as Foxtrot, Golf, and Alpha is easier than just a set of letters and numbers that have no meaning. Drill yourself repeatedly to make sure you know your passwords by heart.

There are also online services that are ultra secure and will act as your password locker. Remembering one password is much easier than remembering ten.

Keepass is a downloadable database for you to keep all your important passwords in one place. It is a good option for those that wish not to use an online password manager for fear of keyloggers when using someone else’s computer. It is absolutely free to use.


PWGen Portable

This is a password manager that can live entirely on your thumb drive. Good for people on the go who want to keep their password separate from computer hard drives and the internet. Careful you do not misplace the thumb drive before locking it with a password.
