5 Ways To Avoid A Stolen Password Pitfall

1. Use A Strong Password

Strong passwords have a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers and incorporate a character. Avoid dictionary words. Shun pets' names, birth dates or a portion of an identification number. Be wary of using strong-password-generator websites to create or check password strength. If you must use one, stick to a tool from an endpoint security vendor that you trust.
