How strong are your passwords?
The UK government have started a #thinkrandom campaign, this campaign is trying to encourage users to select 3 random words to create 1 strong password. They are wanting users to have 1 of these passwords for each of their important accounts like email, banking and social media. There have been lots of attacks recently and passwords dumps from high end websites like Dropbox and LinkedIn and many more.
Your email, bank and social media accounts are the most important accounts. So with a unique strong password for each it will help protect your personal information. If a hacker manages to get into your email they can ask for all your other online accounts to be reset. If they succeed, then it won’t take them long to piece everything together and create a fake identity. So it is very important to have a strong password for all your online accounts.
