Example of why a longer password is more secure

The following password will often satisfy most business password requirements.
aA2@password123

The following password which does not use the recommendations of numbers and symbols still tests as more secure

There is nothing wrong with adding numbers and symbols but it should be something you can remember without writing it down or use a Password Manger to make much easier.

Also, remember DO NOT use the same password on more than one site. All sites should have or use their own unique password. Why using a password manager today makes it much easier to manage.

Highly recommended that you DO NOT use single-sign on web links such as Facebook, Google, etc that allow you to log onto other sites.
