Best Password Management Practices

Always use different password for different accounts. Never use the same password on the same

Never share your passwords to other users. By sharing your password to other users you may
unknowingly passed your password to unknown attackers.

Always use some form of Multifactor Authentication or MFA. MFA can be used in the form of static pin,
OTP, or questionnaire that only you know about yourself.

Always incorporate password complexity. Password complexity can reduce the attack surface from
brute force attacks. With password complexity you can make your password longer than normal so it
harder to guess. There are paid and free tools available to create password complexity if you have a
hard time to create one yourself.

Always make sure that your password is hard to guess. See above (password complexity)
Never save your password in any browsers. Attackers can detect browsers-based passwords very easily.

Always use password managers to store your passwords. Password Managers have encrypted file
system that prevent attackers from guessing your password. With Password Managers you can rotate
your hard to guess passwords often and you don’t have to remember what they are set to.
