This day was created to raise awareness about the importance of using strong passwords.

World Password Day was established in 2013 and is observed on the first Thursday in May.

A strong password helps you keep your personal information safe and prevents someone else from getting into your account.

Tips for Good Password Management

Create a strong and complex password: Use 8 characters or more. It can be any combination of letters, numbers and symbols.

Make them long enough and, where applicable, follow the guideline of the site providing password strength feedback.

Make your password unique: Do not use your YouTube account password on other sites. If another site gets hacked, the password could be used to enter your YouTube account.

Be cautious of anyone reaching out to “verify” contact information. Knowing definitively who you are providing your information to is critical. 

Look for security options that include biometrics (face, voice, fingerprint) during verification processes. 

Avoid sharing sensitive information over e-mail or other non-encrypted methods.”

Beware of phishing attacks where password reset requests are disguised through websites and phone calls impersonating legitimate businesses or government agencies.

And if you suspect you have been a victim to identity theft immediately notify the concerned parties and authorities to report the incident.”

Avoid personal information and common words: Do not use personal information like your birthdays, common words like “password” or common patterns like “1234”
