Technical Brief: Password Security

A little more elaboration on the importance of password best practices. Topics include password strength, some tips of what not to use, and suggestions on password managers.

A little care to your password can go a long way, your email password is in particular extremely important. Many websites use your email as a way to validate who you are, and having your email compromised can potentially open up on average hundreds of other web services you may subscribe to.

Most importantly, DO NOT REUSE or RECYCLE PASSWORDS! If a website database get breached, and if you use the same password on other sites, all sites would be potentially breached.
