Unfortunately, it seems that Hackers don't go on Furlough!
Whilst we spend more time on the internet, all of us need to make it harder for anyone outside of the family or work circle, having the ability to access your software.
To make it harder for cyber criminals to exploit weaknesses, try and make sure your password harder to crack.
For many years we have known that you are more likely to have your passwords hacked if you choose birthdays or easy number combinations, Password123 for example. You can be forgiven for making it simple to remember, but at what cost?
The National Cyber Security Centre are part of GCHQ . They are currently highlighting the need for us all to toughen up on cyber-crime and have written a really good article on what you can do for your own security www.cyberaware.gov.uk
They suggest a combination of three random words as a password, making them longer and stronger to fend off an unwanted but successful access.
Don’t worry… they don’t need to be so obscure that you can’t remember them each time but words that mean something to you.Steering away from names of family members.
You could use CakeFlowersTV for example. Note, the use of Capital letters to make it even harder to guess.
You could use your favourite smells or clothing for ease in remembering.
Whatever you decide, please do remember to make your password difficult to guess and if you have the time, take a read of the suggestions on the link above which also offers advice on other aspects of internet security.
We hope you find it useful.
