    • Do not use the same password, security question and answer for multiple important accounts.
    • Use a password that has at least 16 characters, use at least one number, one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter and one special symbol.
    • Do not use the names of your families, friends or pets in your passwords.
    • Do not use postcodes, house numbers, phone numbers, birthdates, ID card numbers, social security numbers, and so on in your passwords.
    • Do not use any dictionary words in your passwords:
    • Examples of strong passwords:
      • gT]dn+7~ZPOJfgX7
      • w,d=F0s9BRF,55`w
      • W-GqcnW'AAPU8Tj8
      Examples of weak passwords:
      • eahbhszt
      • football
      • 1234567890
      • 9876543210
      • password
    • Do not use two or more similar passwords which most of their characters are same, for example, ilovemyPC, ilovemyMac, since if one of these passwords is stolen, then it means that all of these passwords are stolen.
    • Do not use something that can be cloned (but you can't change) as your passwords, such as your fingerprints.
    • Do not let your Web browsers( FireFox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, IE ) to store your passwords, since all passwords saved in Web browsers can be revealed easily.
    • Do not log in to important accounts on the computers of others, or when connected to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, Tor, free VPN or web proxy.
    • Do not send sensitive information online via unencrypted( e.g. HTTP or FTP ) connections, because messages in these connections can be sniffed with very little effort. You should use encrypted connections such as HTTPS, SFTP, FTPS, SMTPS, IPSec whenever possible.
