Why should I use strong, unique passwords?

Simple and commonly used passwords, like your child’s name or password123, are easy to remember, but they’re also easy for cybercriminals to guess. Strong, unique passwords are your first line of defense against cybercriminals breaking into your online accounts and stealing your personal data.

A strong password has:

  • At least 8 characters, and preferably more
  • Both UPPERCASE and lowercase letters
  • Both letters and numbers
  • At least one special character, such as ! @ # ?

Overall, strong passwords should be long, complex and difficult to remember.

Why use a password generator in combination with a password manager?

One problem with many free password generators is that they don’t store passwords for you; they just spit them out, and you have to keep track of them on your own. A password manager gives you a secure place to store all of your passwords, and it gives you access to them when you need them. Robust password managers like Keeper have an autofill function that automatically fills in your login credentials on all of your accounts and apps.

Why Keeper is the ultimate password security platform.

Generating strong passwords is important, but without storing them in a password manager like Keeper, you're putting your passwords and other personal information at risk for a devastating cyberattack. Keeper generates strong, unique passwords for all of your apps and accounts, and it stores them in a secure digital vault that you can access from any device, running any operating system. You’ll never lose or forget another password again!
