Using weak password

If you are reading this, it is not too late to update your weak password to a stronger one. What is a strong password? Why there is a need to use a strong password? At 16 characters and above is considered a strong password.

A strong password, I personally reckon that it must be 10 characters long, comprises of upper letters, lower letters, numbers, and at least one symbol. If your current passwords have not met this requirement, they are weak.

I have seen 123456, abc123, p@ssword and similar. They are an extremely weak password, they should be prohibited and updated immediately.

In today’s internet, access to the internet is easy, brute-force login attacks are common. Thus, you should refrain yourselves using a weak password. A strong password is difficult to remember, the introduction of 2FA will help with this situation. But the strong password is the most effective defence from any authorized access.
