Step 5

Create Stronger Passwords.

Simply changing your passwords can reduce your chances of being the victim of a cyberattack. Short, simple passwords with personal meaning are easy for hackers to crack, but longer passwords tend to be more secure. Try stringing together four unrelated but recognizable words, such as textbook-lightbulb-coupon-waterfall. This password is hard to decode because of its length, and it is far easier to remember than a random string of letters and numbers.

Use a different password for every website that you log into. Although no password is completely secure, a smart password strategy can prevent hackers from using the same password to access all of the information you store on different websites.
