At LuminFire, we have a way of describing the quality of a great password: “fantastically strong”. The idea of a fantastically strong password essentially means that it checks all of the boxes for increased security, thereby increasing the effort it takes a hacker to guess your password. “Fantastically Strong” passwords meet the following criteria:
16 or more alpha characters (letters)
2 or more numbers
2 or more symbols
Extra credit — add a space, and have more than one word
Security is more important than ever. With companies announcing data breaches in the millions of records you need to protect your personal information and your business data from this risk. Great password management is one key component to a full security strategy.
