How to keep your Windows password safe?

A protected Windows password is beneficial in protecting your computer files and folders from unauthorized viewers. Following are 3 easy tips about the best way best to maintain your Windows password protected?

1. Make Windows Password Strong Enough

The longer the password, the safer your Windows password will be. If it comes to a powerful Windows password, it needs to be extended (at least 8 characters in length). It should consist of letters (upper and lower case), numbers, and symbols, like %^&*()-+. It is not a word or combination of words or a combination of numbers and words. It should not include some of your personal information like birthrate, phone number. A fantastic password looks like this: gh{Q#oz8$5t. Meanwhile, please note the strong password should be easy for you to keep in mind. Otherwise, it is going to cause serious problems if you forgot Windows password.

2. Don’t use the exact same password for everything

I know, it is convenient to develop with one password which you can recall and keep using it anywhere, but it isn’t safe. Having one password for each of your accounts makes you incredibly vulnerable to hackers. Never use your Windows password anywhere. Use different passwords to control your Windows, your blogging, your social networks, etc..

3. Create a Windows password reset disk
