Passwords have been used for a long time as the only way to log into websites. Unless you have a strong unique password, your websites will be vulnerable for hacker attacks.
One of the easiest ways that hackers use to break into a website is through a weak password. Many webmasters don’t take the time to create solid, strong passwords because they say it takes too much time to create and manage passwords and that it is difficult to keep track of all the different passwords. While this may be true, if you compare it to the frustration and the time it would take to rebuild your site in case of an attack, then you would know how much time and effort you would save by creating solid passwords.
The longer and more complex your password is, the harder and the longer it takes for hackers to crack.
Here are some tips on creating strong passwords
- Every password should be at least 12 characters in length
- Every password should be a combination of special characters, lowercase letters, capital letters and numbers.
- Every site should have a different password
- Don’t use only phrases or words or numbers for a password
