Passwords are\u00a0your first line of defense from scammers and online thieves. Make sure you create unique passwords for each of your online accounts especially for your email and financial accounts. Stay away from common words or sequences that can easily be guessed. Don\u2019t use information that is easily found through a simple Google search such as parent\u2019s name, city or date of birth.\r\n\r\nTo make stronger passwords try using unique combinations of letters, numbers and special characters. It might be difficult to remember the password combination but if you set a system that\u2019s specific to you, you\u2019ll be able to have a varied password that\u2019s hard for online thieves to guess.\r\n\r\nTry starting with a phrase such as \u201cMy day starts with a glass of water and tea\u201d then turn that to MdswagoH2O&t.
