BE CAREFUL WHEN USING PUBLIC Wi-Fi CONNECTIONS

Selecting Secure Passwords

Protecting your Personal Information with Secure Passwords

The Department of Homeland Security advises that email, banking, social media and mobile apps generate a long list of passwords users. While keeping track of numerous account logins can be tedious, there could be serious implications if a cybercriminal gains access to your email, financial information, social security number, or even your medical records. Passwords are the most common means of authentication online, and that is why it is critical to use strong passwords and keep them confidential.
