In a report, it has been claimed that more than 75 percent hacking happens due to easy passwords. Today we are telling you what your password should be and how it should not be.
In the last few years in India, there has been a lot of development in the matter of internet. Last year, in 2020, the number of Internet users in the country reached around 70 million. Internet users are growing here at the fastest and fastest pace in the world, so India has emerged as a big online market.
Now obviously when so many people use the internet, the risk of hacking is also increased somewhere. The number of hackers and online fraud in India has also increased rapidly. This is because of our low awareness and weak passwords. Remember, the weaker your password, the easier will be the work of hackers.
Keep your password like
If you want to keep a strong password, then keep at least 8 characters and use big and small letters, numbers and symbols in it. The password should not be such that it can be easily guessed. Never enter your personal details like name, address, phone number, email etc. in your password. Also, change the password time to time. If you have shared your password with someone, then change it immediately.
Do not forget this password
Password is always remembered, so most users put their mobile number, date of birth or their name in the password. By doing this, the work of hackers becomes even easier. To break any password, the hackers first apply these three things as the password and they become successful in it. Remember do not make name, date of birth or mobile number your password. Password should always be unique and strong.
Password should be different for every ID
Often we also do the same password in all our social media platforms. This is the reason why hackers hack all your accounts with a single password. Always use different passwords on different platforms. Which can reduce the possibility of hacking. Common password makes it easy for hackers to break into your account.
Will not be a victim of hackers
To protect your social media accounts from hackers, you must also use special characters in addition to letters and numbers in the password. Write all your passwords in one place so that even if you forget your password, you can see it there. Also, use different passwords in all your platforms. Keeping these things in mind, you can keep your accounts safe.
