Upgrade to a passphrase

Financial Fraud Awareness

A passphrase is simply a phrase or sentence that you use as your password instead of just a word or set of characters. IT experts recommend using passphrases as online offenders have developed advanced hacking tools to decode simplistic passwords. 

PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN WHILE CREATING A PASSPHRASE

PASSWORD / PASSPHRASE

Do:

  • Use a phrase that is meaningful to you but can't be easily guessed
  • Add special characters, numbers at relevant places
  • Add spaces in between words to increase characters
  • Make it long. The longer the phrase, the more difficult it is to break
  • Try to have a phrase from your favorite song or your safety first favorite quotation to make it easily memorable
  • Ensure that every account you have has a distinct passphrase

Don’t:

  • Create a password that is common or popular
  • Make it either extremely complicated or too simple
  • Write it down on any paper
  • Reuse an old password
