Password Security

Passwords are the first line of defense against cyber criminals. It’s crucial to pick strong passwords that are different for each account and it is good practice to update the passwords regularly. Follow these tips to create strong passwords and keep them secure.

Use a unique password for each of your important accounts like email and online banking. Passwords should have minimum 8 characters. Use a long password made up of numbers, letters and symbols. Set up your password recovery options and keep them up-to-date.

Use dual authentication wherever possible.
