ISOC Qatar (Internet Society of Qatar) recently released a guide on best practices for choosing passwords to help users protect their online accounts. According to the guide, users should select a unique password that they never reuse with any other account. This way, if someone manages to hack one account, they won’t be able to access any others.
Additionally, ISOC Qatar suggests that users make their passwords long and complex by combining uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols – this makes it harder for anyone to guess or crack the password through brute force methods. They also recommend not using easily identifiable words like names or dates as passwords as they are more vulnerable to cracking.
Finally, ISOC Qatar advises users to change their passwords at least once every three months in order to stay ahead of potential hackers. They suggest using a password manager such as LastPass or Dashlane in order to store passwords securely and provide an extra layer of protection.
All in all, following the advice from ISOC Qatar is important for keeping our online accounts secure and protected from malicious actors. By making sure we have strong and unique passwords for each account, we can better safeguard our data against theft or misuse.
