Why is it important to change your passwords frequently?

  1. Prevent Constant Access
  2. It can be difficult to figure out if someone else is using your account, so by changing your password consistently, you reduce the risk that other people will have frequent access to your accounts. Consider changing your password every few months to be on the safe side.

  3. Limit Guesswork
  4. If you use the same password for long stretches of time, you increase the risk of someone guessing your password. Whether it's from someone watching you type in your password a number of times or someone repeatedly trying to guess it, the longer you use the same password, the longer people have to try to find out what it is. Don't let people watch you log into your accounts, and avoid using short, easy-to-guess words or phrases.

  5. Limits Multiple Account Breaches
  6. It can be tempting to use the same password on every account you have, whether for computers and network equipment or online accounts, as it's much easier to remember a single one. However, it also means that if someone figures out your password, he can gain access to every account you have. Changing your passwords to something different and unique to each account will make it so that even if someone does guess one password, he cannot use it for anything else.

  7. Choosing a Good Password
  8. When coming up with a new password, you want something that can be safe from guesswork and hacking attempts. You may be tempted to use a long password, but quality is much more important than quantity. Hacking programs are capable of guessing passwords by combining random words and phrases together, as well as any information relevant to you. To combat this, avoid using any personal information such as dates, addresses or names. Also avoid using simple words and phrases; if you do, make them grammatically incorrect to avoid guessing. Use random combinations of numbers, letters and symbols that can still be easy to remember. For example, instead of "password" -- which should never be used under any circumstance -- you could use "p4$$w0rD." It is still the same word, and still short, but far harder to guess either by human or program.
