Learn how to create unique, secure, and easy-to-remember passwords

It Can Happen To Anyone

Cyberattacks have evolved out of Mom’s basement and now operate as a global network of sophisticated cyber criminals. A complex, memorable password will significantly help secure your online identity.

Cyber criminals target a large company, accessing hundreds of thousands of usernames and passwords

Many individuals use the same credentials for multiple accounts (e.g. bank accounts, credit cards, social media profiles)

Through trial and error, the attackers can use these credentials to gain access to a person’s finances or sensitive information

The hackers use a program to cycle through all possible passwords until it finds the one that “opens the lock.” Standard “brute force” programs output 100 BILLION guesses/second. Advanced programs crack at 400 BILLION guesses/second.
