ESET: Tips for creating powerful passwords

ESET: The dangers that lurk in the virtual world of the Internet are often not perceived by some users, who have grown up in the era where there was no Internet and social , unlike the new generations who are growing up in the digital age and are more suspicious.password eset

Θέλοντας να βοηθήσει τους ανυποψίαστους χρήστες, ο Ondrej Kubovic, IT Security Specialist της ESET, προσφέρει μερικούς βασικούς κανόνες για ασφαλή .  

Let's look at what ESET suggests:

  1. Create a unique code for each account and don't share it with anyone.
  2. The rule is – the bigger o πρόσβασης, τόσο πιο ασφαλής. Ξεκινήστε με τουλάχιστον 8 χαρακτήρες, αλλά επιμηκύνετε τον κωδικό αν χρησιμεύει για  να προστατεύει πολύτιμα ή λογαριασμούς.

  7. One of the most important rules is not to use the same password again in other accounts. In this way, if stolen, only one account is in danger, and it is worth mentioning it even if we repeat it.

At it may sound simple enough, but the reality is more complex.

According to ESET, multiple studies have shown that the average user has dozens of passwords for an even larger number of accounts, which makes it difficult to manage them. However, there are strategies to stay safe by facilitating the process.

The first thing that can help is passwords, or passphrases, which, although larger than passwords, are easier to remember.

Another way is to use a reliable password manager, which stores all the passwords in one place, and all the user needs to remember is one of them, that is, the one that will allow him to unlock the .
