Tip of the Week:

Pass Phrases Are More Secure Than Traditional Passwords. Use Long Pass Phrases When Securing Sensitive Data.

Pass phrases are easier to remember than traditional passwords and more difficult for a hacker to guess. Use proper capitalization and punctuation in your pass phrase to increase its complexity and make it even more secure. Use a phrase that you'll find easy to remember and resist the urge to write it down or store it in a computer file.
