As technology advances, it becomes increasingly important to take steps to keep our online accounts secure.

One crucial aspect of online security is password safety. In a recent video shared on Twitter, cyber expert and TV panelist Prashant Sahu shared some password safety tips that everyone should follow to protect their accounts from hackers.

Here are some of Sahu's tips and know why they are important.

Creating a strong password:

The first step to keeping your password safe is to make sure it is strong. According to Sahu, a strong password should contain a combination of special characters, letters, and numbers. This makes it more difficult for AI-powered tools to crack your password.

Additionally, it is important to avoid using the same password for all of your social media accounts.

If a hacker discovers one of your passwords, they will be able to access all of your accounts. Instead, create unique passwords for each platform.

Changing your password regularly:

Another important tip is to change your password regularly. Sahu recommends changing your password every few months to prevent hackers from getting access to your accounts.

It is also important to manage your passwords carefully. If you have trouble remembering your passwords, consider using a password manager or writing them down and keeping them in a safe place.

Enabling two-factor authentication:

One of the most effective ways to protect your accounts is to enable two-factor authentication (2FA). With 2FA, you will be prompted to enter a code in addition to your password when logging in to your account.

This makes it much more difficult for hackers to access your accounts, even if they have your password. Sahu recommends enabling 2FA on every social media platform you use.
