What makes a strong password
The easiest way to protect yourself from cyber threats is by having a strong password. The longer and more complex your password is, the more difficult it will be to crack. Hackers have databases full of the most common passwords and phrases, and they can run a comparison with your password to find a match.
Your password should be greater that nine characters long, with at least one capital letter, one number and one special character "@", or "%", etc. Add an extra level of security by changing your password regularly to ensure that you stay ahead of the hackers. Remember, the best passwords contain as much randomness as possible.

IMPORTANT: It is important to remember that you should not use the same password for multiple accounts, no matter how strong it is,because if one account gets compromised, then they all get compromised.
