Password Common Sense

All of the following is common knowledge but people still tend to ignore password common sense, so its worth repeating:

Create a unique password every time

When you change a password for any of your account, it should not be identical to any of the previous passwords.

Change the passwords for all your existing accounts at least once every 6 months

Since passwords have a fixed length, a brute-force attack to crack a password will always be successful given enough processing power and time.

Do not write down your passwords

Creating a strong password and writing it on a piece of paper is as bad as choosing an easy-to-remember password and keeping it in your head.

DO NOT SHARE YOUR PASSWORD WITH ANYONE!

That includes your family and friends. Instead, share security tips with your elderly relatives because they belong to one of the most vulnerable groups of the internet users.

Never send an email with your password included in the text

Legitimate organisations or websites never ask for your username and password via email.

Do not set the same password on different websites

It is very attractive to create the same or very similar passwords for all banking sites, social network websites etc. Avoid the temptation and create unique passwords for each account.

In case your password gets compromised, change it immediately 

Even if you only suspect that someone might have stolen your password, change it right away.
