Online users are often at risk of having their data exposed because they commit common password mistakes. Since passwords aren’t going away any time soon we compiled a list of common mistakes to avoid to help keep your data more secure.  So, how can you avoid these common password mistakes? 


With news coming out almost every day about breaches at different companies, it seems like our passwords are always at risk. Companies are expected to scramble your password after you enter them, a practice known as hashing, but not all companies use robust or up-to-date algorithms, making it easy for hackers to revert the hashing process and see your password in basic plain text. However, the longer and more complex you make your passwords the harder and more time it takes for hackers to decrypt them. Since it can be difficult to always come up with and keep track of unique, complex passwords, using a password manager will take the frustration out of passwords.

Password managers protect you by generating strong and distinctive passwords for each website that you use which means you don’t have to.
