What should Do or Don’t with Password in Firefox

Posted In Browser, Internet - By Techtiplib on Friday, November 23rd, 2012 With 1 Comment

There’s a saying when it comes to online passwords: they’re like a toothbrush. That’s because you want a good toothbrush (just like a password), you should change it often (just like a password) and you should never share it (just like a password!).

There are some key dos and don’ts that can help:

DON’T

– Use personal information that could be easily guessed or accessed, like your birthday (which happens more often than you might think) — it’s easy for you to remember, but easy for someone shady to find

– Use actual words that you can find in actual language (any language)

– Use the same password for all of your accounts

DO

– Use a different password for each account

– Combine capital letters, numbers and special characters

– Change your password once every three months or so — and immediately if a site notifies you of a security breach

– Use the Master Password feature in Firefox

By now you’re probably thinking, “I can’t remember my keys in the morning. How am I supposed to remember all these new passwords all the time?”

Here are a few steps to creating easy-to-remember passwords that are still secure.

– Choose a phrase — let’s try “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

– Use the first letter in each word and capitalize the first one: Tqbfjotld

– Make it stronger by adding a special character: Tqbfjotld!

– Now, associate it with each website you log in to. For example, you could use YT for YouTube, FB for

Facebook, your bank’s initials — you get the point. So your password would now look like this:

YTTqbfjotld! (for YouTube)

FBTqbfjotld! (for Facebook)

and so on, and so on…

Choosing secure passwords will go a long way to keeping you safe online.
