Password Security Tips
You can put yourself at risk if you use the same password for every account you have. If a criminal obtains access to your login information, they can easily attempt the same password for other accounts you may have.
Set a strong password that consists of a minimum of 8 to 12 characters containing both upper and lower case letters, at least one number and at least one unique characters such as *, @, #, $, %, !, etc.
Trying to remember a strong password for multiple accounts can be mentally exhausting. A tip to remember a strong password for each account is to include the first three letters to the end or beginning of your strong password you’ll remember. For example, if your strong password that you created is 1982*TLC# and you have an account at Macy’s, you can set your password for Macy’s to be either MAC1982*TLC# or 1982*TLC#MAC. As long as you use the same pattern at each website you have a log in for, you’ll be able to have both a strong password that is unique yet easy for you to remember.
