Protect Your Pa$$w0rd Campaign Launched By Neighbourhood Watch
As we spend more time at home and on our online devices, over one third (34%) of people say that they’re more concerned about cybercrime than physical crime and a startling 1 in 5 people are victims of cybercrime!* You could be more at risk than you might think.
If strengthening your passwords is something you keep putting off, or you feel overwhelmed by the sea of online security information, you’re not alone.
As part of our Cyberhood Watch initiative, launched in 2019 in partnership with Avast, we have launched a PROTECT YOUR Pa$$W0Rd campaign that targets both the overwhelmed and complacent, providing everyone with 3 easy steps to be more secure online.
PROTECT YOUR Pa$$W0Rd in 3 easy steps
Create a separate password for your email account
Use 3 random words
Turn on two-factor authentication (2FA)
To find out more about how to do each step visit our Password Protection page on our website - https://www.ourwatch.org.uk.
But we won’t stop there! Whilst taking the 3 easy steps will go a long way to protecting yourself online, we want to protect not just you but your whole community! To do this, we are asking you to spread the word and help protect your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours by sharing these 3 easy steps with 3 others. To share with others you can copy a link to this page to at least 3 of your friends.
