By Nirdesh Pokharel

You need to strengthen your account password to prevent any of your online accounts from being hacked.

It is very common to use numbers and letters like your date of birth, place of birth, name or surname as an online account. There are still many people who have the same password in many accounts. In this way, hackers can easily find the user’s password and the risk of hacking the account is high.

Internet giant Google has given 5 tips to create a strong password. According to Google, these are the things to look for when creating a strong password

 Password must be long

According to Google, the password must contain at least 8 digits. To strengthen your password, you need to use uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

 Passwords must be different:

Internet users should use different passwords in their different online accounts. Do not use the same password on more than one account.

 Password must be creative:

Some users use very simple things as passwords for their convenience. Including your name, surname or analogy, the name of the school, the name of the toll you live in, the name of your favorite sports club, 12345. It is risky to have such a password for convenience. Hackers can easily find your password and hack your account. So be a little creative when choosing a password.

 Do not enter personal information in the password:

According to Google, your name, address, phone number and email should not be used as passwords. This can make it easier for other people or hackers to find your password and hack your account.

 Keep changing passwords:

You should not keep the same password for too long. Passwords need to be changed from time to time. If for some reason your password has been shared with another person or someone else knows your password, change the password immediately.
