With all the news about data breaches and account compromises, it is important to keep our online data safe by changing our passwords. February 1st is Change your password day and a day to remind ourselves to review our online security. The day was established back in 2012 where a strong password used to be 8 to 10 characters long, and having at least one upper case, 1 number and a symbol. These days, that is no longer good enough, we should all be a password manager and two factor authentication.
