 Using Strong Passwords for your B2BFreeZone.com Account
Article 1. What do you mean by “Strong Password”?

Creating a strong password is beneficial as it is very hard for anyone to simply guess or break into it. A strong password may consist of random letters and numbers placed in a way that can counteract any educated guesses or any malicious software that can crack passwords.

Strong passwords are used because they cannot be easily guessed. Hackers often use automated tools to help them guess or crack passwords, and the easier a password is to guess, the faster a hacker can crack it.

You can create a strong password by following these steps:

• The password length should be 6 to 12 characters

• Don’t use your login name AT ALL in the password
• Avoid using a real word from any language


4. How can I secure my Strong Password?

It is a habit of people to write down their secret password, and tape it to the monitor or tuck it into a desk drawer next to their computer. This is to be avoided in order to secure your password. The following are a few recommendations for handling your passwords more safely:

• Keep your password secret
• Use different passwords for different web sites
• Change your passwords at least once every six months
