  • Choose a password in minimum characters that your system allows. Number of characters in your password also impact strength of password.
  • Keep changing your password. Changing your system password once a six month or yearly to prevent hacking.
  • Avoid using a word in English dictionary or any name etc.
  • Never share your password with anyone and don’t write your password on your diary. Don’t share your password to anyone through email. It is not a secured way.
