Why do I need a secure password?

Having a secure password for your email and website logins is the single most important thing you can do to avoid being the victim of hacking, fraud and other related criminal activities.

Before we explain how to create and manage secure passwords, let’s look at how passwords are stolen and the potential consequences.

The main way passwords are stolen is by using a “brute-force” attack.

Brute-force attacks are especially successful if you use dictionary words and names, as the software will check your password against every word in the dictionary and any common name within minutes.
