Passwords are, for many , the weakest link in their security chain.
Whether it is your online accounts , banking , or logging into your computer , your password needs to be good.
Names that are visible should be avoided at all costs : for example – richard2015 is a terrible password that will be broken very quickly.
However 20Richa15rd is an improvement.
Make sure you know your password , use a password manager such as Last Pass
If 2 factor authentication is available make sure you use it , something you know (your password) and something you have ( the code sent to your mobile phone number ).
