World Password Day




When is World Password Day 2024?

World Password Day is on the first Thursday of May each year, which is May 2 in 2024.


What is World Password Day 2024?

The awareness-raising incentive is an annual reminder about the dangers of weak online passwords and staying safe against hackers.


Weak passwords can leave you a target for identity theft or for thieves to access your personal accounts. This risks either your money or data being taken directly or your account being accessed by crooks who then ask your friends and family for money.


Software exists that can allow hackers to guess easy passwords in just a few minutes.


What is a good password to use online?

The best way to make your password difficult to hack is by using a sequence of three random words. “The longer the better,” a statement said. “You can make it even stronger by including special characters and numbers.”


The centre also recommends using two-factor authentication and using unique passwords for email, bank and social media accounts.


We at Chibitek stress the need to create a strong and unique password for your email. “Ideally, you should use unique passwords for all your important online accounts (such as banking accounts, shopping/payment accounts and social media accounts), not just your email account." says Minako Hinman of Chibitek.

You should also provide additional protection by setting up 2-step verification (2FA or MFA) on your email account, which will prevent a criminal from accessing your email account even if they know your password.
