Password and Passphrase Secuity

LastPass
Question
Why is password and pass phrase security important?
Answer

Passwords have recently become easier to compromise by attackers and the recommendation is to use passphrases instead.  A passphrase is a string of words or sentence that is easy to remember, easy to type and long enough that they are hard to compromise by attackers. 

Best Practices

•    Use Passphrases – Easy to remember, harder to guess, faster to enter!
•    Do NOT share your passwords
•    Use multi-factor authentication when available
•    Use different passwords on different systems.
•    Don't use passwords that are based on personal information that can be easily found on social media.
•    Use the longest password or passphrase permissible by each password system.
