Tips for selecting a secure password

 Selecting a secure password for your HuronTel services is an important step to make sure that your account stays secure. Below are some tips to help you choose a good password and keep it secure: 

  1. Your password should not be easy to guess. Do not use any words or phrases that have any meaning that would be easy for someone else to guess who knows you.

  2. Don’t share your password with anyone. Your password is like your bank card pin. You should be the only person who knows it.

  3. Always pick a unique password that you have not used anywhere else. If a hacker gets a password, they can try it on other services that you may use and if you have used the same password there then they can access that account too.

  4. Your password should be at least 8 to 10 characters in length. The longer your password, the harder it is for someone to guess it.

  5. You should use at least one capital letter and one lower case letter when creating your password. Capital letters should not be the first or last letter of the password.

  6. Passwords should contain at least one number in them.

  7. Special characters help in creating a secure password. Using characters like the exclamation mark (!), the dollar sign ($), and the ampersand (&) are good characters to use when creating your password.

  8. Avoid using default passwords. These include passwords such as: admin, password, and guest.
