What are the best ways to protect passwords?

Printer-friendly version
  • Never store your passwords in a regular document like Microsoft Word or Excel - use a password manager
  • Never send passwords in an email to anyone.
  • Change your passwords regularly.
  • Abide by password policies; they are there for your protection.
  • When you send email, do not give your email username. It’s half of the equation to getting your login credentials.
  • Never share passwords.
  • Never write down passwords on a piece of paper unless you stored it in a locked cabinet or safe.
  • Always make your password a strong password.
