The FBI recommends using simple but long passwords

FBIIn accordance with FBI, the weak codes access is one of the biggest problems associated with the internet safety. A large number of users use very simple or common passwords access that can be easily guessed by a cybercriminal.

These passwords can be easily broken. For this reason, we hear about it daily violations accounts and devices from hackers.

Most experts security suggest users to use strong passwords and change them regularly. However, many users don't pick strong codes because they can't remember them easily.

So the FBI made a news proposal: “Instead of using a short and complicated code that makes it difficult for you, use one larger password, something like a passphrase. " You can make a phrase with different words and symbols you remember, with at least 15 characters. The longer password passwords helps you remember them better while at the same time makes it difficult for them hackers.

Simple passwords are easy to crack so they are considered non-existent safe. But it does take some time for that to happen. According to the FBI, people they can use simple codes, as long as they are large, to make it even more difficult for hackers who will need a lot more time to guess them and break them. On the other hand, they themselves users they will be able to remember them more easily.

Therefore, the FBI argues that the alternative to complex passwords is to increase characters. In this way security is enhanced.

passwords

For example, two of the most common passwords are "123456" and the word "password". Adding more numbers after 123456 will increase the validity of the code.

Adding more letters or symbols before and after the numbers will be even better.
