Today’s Reason to Celebrate – May 7

Here’s a reason to celebrate today…


Each year on the first Thursday in May, World Password Day promotes better password habits. Passwords are critical gatekeepers to our digital identities, allowing us to access online shopping, dating, banking, social media, private work, and life communications.

In a cyber world, secure passwords are important. Other than keeping your information offline, long, unique and complex passwords protect your valuable information best. Another tactic is changing your passwords every few months or any time you think your accounts have been compromised.

Here’s some good password tips:

  • change an old password to a long, strong one
  • turn on two-factor authentication for your important accounts
  • password protect your wireless router
  • don’t store passwords on your computer or phone
  • log off when you’re done with a program
  • periodically remove temporary internet files
