Are you getting lots of email spam? Change your password to make an immediate difference.

Have you started to get lots of email spam hitting your inbox? I’m sure you’ve been spending just a couple of minutes a day deleting them and moving on right? There’s two problems with this, it’ll get worse and it’s such a waste of time. In fact just those two minutes a day add up to a whopping 12 hours a year!

And it can be really simple to fix – just make your password harder to break.

Try this method when coming up with a new secure password

  • a minimum of 1 special character: ~`[email protected]#$%^&*()-_+={}[]|\;:”<>,./?
  • at least 1 upper case, numeric, and special character must be EMBEDDED somewhere in the middle of the password, and not just be the first or the last character of the password string.
