Passwords are a pain.  And thanks to all the criminals in the world they are also a necessary evil. World Password Day was created to encourage you to improve your password habits.

The World Password organization says to celebrate you need to:

  • Create A Strong Password
  • Use a different password for every account
  • Get a password manager
  • Turn on Multi Factor authentication

Sounds like a lot I know but if you have ever known anyone whose information or accounts have been hacked they'll tell you that is more of a bother and that fixing it is harder to do. Click here to test your security IQ. I took the test and I got average with room for improvement.
