Practice strong password habits
Create strong passwords
Create passwords with a minimum of 10 characters that use a combination of letters (upper and lower case), numbers, and symbols. A good way to create a strong password is to think of a memorable phrase or use the first letter of each word as your password, converting some letters into numbers that resemble letters. For example, “I love DCU” into “!l0v3DCU!!”
Rather than storing your usernames and passwords on a piece of paper or document on your computer which can be compromised by hackers, we recommend using a password manager. Password managers are online tools that keep your list of usernames and passwords encrypted.
