How to make your passwords hard to crack

– Mix it up. Create passwords that are 10 characters or longer and include uppercase letters, lowercase letters, symbols and numbers, says Adam Tyler, chief innovation officer for identity protection firm CSID.

– Be more creative. Use a unique password for each account, Tyler says, and vary the e-mail addresses you use for accounts.

– Split social media and money. Do not use the same password for credit cards and bank accounts that you use for social media or websites, Lieberman says.

– Revise record-keeping. Don’t store your account information in an unsecured document on your computer or network.

– Keep data close. Don’t share your password, even with friends and family.

– Stay informed. Beyond changing passwords and creating better ones, Tyler recommends that users stay informed as the details of the breach become released.
