Every year, the first Thursday in May is World Password Day. Started in 2013, it’s an official annual calendar holiday that serves as a reminder for us to take control of our personal password strategies. Passwords are a typical part of our data-driven online digital lives. We use passwords for everything—from signing onto smartphones, computers and other digital devices, to online shopping, checking our bank accounts, using apps for a variety of purposes, and so much more.
Because they are such a part of our daily lives, it can be easy to start taking both our personal and work passwords for granted, forgetting how important they are and the consequences if they are stolen. With that in mind, we’ve listed some top tips for World Password Day. Take today to start a password overhaul and strengthen your personal online privacy practices.
