Good passwords are key to keeping your important information private and secure. Nowadays, hackers are finding new ways of breaching our data. They can target different areas like websites, accounts, banking data, and much more. With this, it might have crossed your mind as to “how do I really outsmart data hackers and keep my passwords strong?”. Thinline Technologies has some advice when it comes to securing your passwords in 2022.
Multiple factor authentication
Consider setting up your business with a two-factor authentication for logins that give you access to your company’s critical information. Think of this as a double password. It is usually a code or number that is sent to you via push notification, text, or email to verify you are the correct owner of the password or login. This can be a great asset to beef up your cyber security efforts. It adds an extra layer of protection and security for your business.
Fingerprint and facial recognition
If your security settings for your passwords have any fingerprint or face recognition option for logging in, we would suggest implementing that or have it turned on. A lot of devices these days have this as an option which can be far superior to just having a single password. These are much harder to crack as a facial scan or fingerprint is owner specific, and not just anyone can get access.
When at work, a lot of people tend to work with different websites used to complete their jobs. In making things easier to access on our end, we tend to use the same login and passwords. This can be a big no-no as if a hacker does get access to one of them, they will most likely catch on and be able to access everything that you have a secure login for. Be sure to vary your logins and passwords so they are not too similar where they can be easily guessed.
