Your banking, social and email accounts contain important information that make up your digital identity. Heres how to create strong passwords to help keep your information safe.
Use a mix of letters, numbers and symbols
Use as many characters as you can - a longer password is harder to decipher
Avoid anything that can be easily guessed such as your address or birthday, or common quotes and phrases
Consider a passphrase: Similar to a password, but instead of creating a string of letters, numbers and symbols, use words that tell a story. For example: MyPetGo@tHa$@PhD. It tells a silly story thats easy to remember, while increasing the unpredictability of your password and making it difficult to guess.
Dont share your passwords with anyone
Dont write your passwords down anywhere
Make them unique reusing a password multiple times makes it less secure, as it only requires one breach to compromise all the accounts with the same password
If you have many accounts, setting alphanumeric passwords for each can become a difficult exercise for your memory. In this instance, you may want to consider using passphrases instead
Wherever available, enable multi-factor authentication, which adds an additional check to prove your identity. An example might be a code you must enter which is accessed via an authenticator app on your mobile device.
You can change your password in NetBank and the CommBank app
