How to Celebrate World Password Day



Think a strong password is enough to keep your accounts safe? Think again. In 2016 alone, more than 3.1 billion user records, including passwords, were leaked online and it's likely millions of them ended up for sale on the dark web. If you didn't know it already, you do now: It's time to step up your password game.

To celebrate World Password Day, we're reminding millions of internet users around the world to protect their passwords online. By combining a password with an extra layer of protection, such as a fingerprint or a single-use code sent to your phone, you add powerful protection for your online accounts, even if the password has been leaked.

This World Password Day, give yourself peace of mind when it comes to your online security. Take five minutes, go to PasswordDay.org and #LayerUp your login! You'll be glad you did.
