How to create random and secure passwords to protect your privacy online
By Renee | 04/Dec/2023
Recently, hundreds of millions of email addresses and passwords have been leaked on the Internet. It is probably the biggest data dump ever, with more than 700 million of email addresses (plus passwords) being exposed online. What these users really need is a strong password, which is the key for protecting personal info and assets online.
Most of you would use the same password for every account you have on the Internet. This is highly insecure for obvious reasons. For important accounts that you need to keep protected it's a good idea to generate a random secure password.
Why it should be random? It is a lot easier to crack passwords that are easy combinations of personal information and natural or random guesses. Your pet’s name, your spouse’s birthday, your first school and information similar to these are really easy to guess. Password hackers do several rounds of alphanumeric permutations and combinations to crack easy passwords within a set time limit.
By using different random passwords, you minimize the potential loss you could suffer in case of a privacy breach.
