Password Security is No Joke

People still use “password” as their password, and it’s one that hackers will guess instantly. Perhaps you use something more complex such as the name of your pet and the year you were born, like Daisy75. But hackers can also guess that pretty quickly, especially if you have posts with that information on social media.

Keeping passwords safe is an important layer of cybersecurity. You need to create complex passwords that are difficult for hackers to guess and find. The most secure passwords are ones that don’t use full words and combine upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Password managers can recommend such passwords and securely save them for you.

But what about the passwords that have already been cracked or stolen? Hackers can access users’ passwords and list them on the dark web when data leaks or breaches occur. Leaked passwords compromise your business’s security and make it easier for other hackers to find your password. You need password monitoring software like Password Watchdog to find hacked passwords on the dark web so that you can change them to something more secure. Start with a free dark web scan to find those stolen passwords now.
