Change My Password

Posted by 6 March, 2019 Comments Off on Change My Password

Passwords are important codes that help to prevent unauthorized access to data and provide accounts management interface. Changing and resetting of passwords is important especially when there is a possibility of the older password has been figured out by an unauthorized person which leads to hacking of the protected account or data. Resetting a password needs one to first log-in, enter the current password followed by the new password and a confirmation of the same. When changing a password, one should generate one that is easy to remember but random enough such that it is not easy to guess. This is best gained by mixing lowercase, uppercase, special characters and numbers.

Passwords should be changed at least once in every 6 months.
