Test Your Password Strength
Since your passwords are the keys that can unlock much more than meets the eye, protecting them is critical to safeguarding your personal and financial information.
Here’s four easy ways to keep your passwords safe:
- Create strong, secure passwords. Use a combination of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and special characters.
- Don’t share your passwords. If you must share your passwords, be sure that you change them immediately after they’ve been used.
- Change passwords regularly. We know you’ve heard this before, but a good rule of thumb is to change passwords every 90 days.
- Take advantage of a password manager — a great alternative to writing your passwords down or keeping them on your phone. EZShield offers its Password Manager tool to all online customers.
This tool is built to measure the security of passwords only. However, it is not an exact science so the results may not always be accurate. No information entered into the tool will be stored or transmitted in any way. Once you exit the tool, anything you have typed will be deleted.
