Features of a strong password
A secure password is a so called strong password – have a look at its characteristics:
- in case of authorization with SMS codes – it is 10 to 32 characters long and is a combination of numbers, upper and lower case letters and symbols (e.g. #%^&@)
- for certificate-based authorization – it is 8 to 16 characters long and is a combination of numbers and upper and lower case letters
- it is easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess
- it does not contain words with logical letter replacements, for example "my p@ssw0rd"
- it does not contain the entire dictionary word
- it differs significantly from previous passwords
- it does not contain repeated characters (e.g. 111111111), sequences (e.g. abcdefgh), or sequence of characters appearing next to each other on the keyboard (e.g. QWERTY).
Safe password conditions:
- do not use the same password for different systems
- the password must be different than the login
- the password cannot consist of the first name, last name, date of birth, tax identification number – both yours and those closest to you; avoid the whole words
- do not reveal your password to anyone
- change the password every few months
- do not keep the password on a computer, phone or card
- never give the password to anyone by phone, e-mail or messenger – it wouldn’t be justified in any situation
- do not enter the password when using unknown computers
