How to create a strong password? #WorldPasswordDay

The first Thursday of every May is celebrated as the World Password day. It was started by Intel in 2013 based on the idea of a security researcher named Mark Burnet who encouraged people to change their passwords often. On this day, let's look into the possible ways one can create a strong password:
  • Use combination of upper and lower case alphabets
  • Use special characters
  • Avoid using dictionary words
  • Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts
  • Use a minimum of 8 characters
  • Avoid using already breached passwords
  • Use uncommon words that are hard to predict or crack as a password.
  • Don't use your family name, birthday, or any other combinations that can be easily identified by people who know you.
Preventing password breaches is as equally important as creating a strong password. Below are the some of the measures you can follow to prevent any password related breaches in future.
  • Don't write down your password in a paper that is easily accessible to others.
  • Don't save your password in public computers.
  • Use a password manager to store your passwords.
In Zoho, we prevent users from using weak passwords during sign up and password reset. When users enter their password, we will check whether the password has already been breached before and if it is, we will ask our users to choose a different and strong password. (Zoho has never faced any security-related issues, and the data you have stored with us is completely safe. We also do not sell your data to anyone.) 
In addition to mandating users to create strong passwords, Zoho has built an industry standard authentication app, OneAuth to provide multi-factor authentication for your Zoho account. The new version of OneAuth will have more exciting features. Stay tuned for the next update of OneAuth!
