4 Common Windows Password Mistakes You Should Avoid


As the first safeguard of our computer data, a Windows password security is worthy of a user's attention. But in reality, few users are aware of the significance of a Windows password. Many users set a Windows password that can be easily hacked, like "123456" or "password", for convenience. Some users even forgot Windows password frequently without a password reset disk at hand. The following lists 4 common Windows password mistakes users easily make.

Mistake 1: Set A Weak Windows Password Like "123456"

When creating a Windows password, you should avoid the passwords like"123456", "password", "abc123", etc, which are too common and weak to be easily recognized, though it seems to difficult for you to reset Windows password . According to an analysis survey, the most popular passwords among nearly 400,000 exposed by the Gawker hack were "123456", with more than 3,000 people had it as a password. If you owned a Windows password like that, stop using them now. Meanwhile, it is better not use only letters or numbers which means great significance to you, like your birthday or names.

There are 2 key factors for a strong Windows password: length and complexity. An ideal password is regarded to be at least 8 characters long and composed of letters, punctuation, symbols, and numbers; avoid personal information, repetition, sequences, and dictionary words. But don't make it too complicated for your memory. Otherwise it happens to forget Windows password easily. A strong Windows password should be easy for you to remember but hard to hack.

Mistake 2: Always Use Same Windows Password

According to PC World, 75 percents of people had the same password for their email accounts and social networking sites. Have you also employ the password with other accounts for avoiding to lost Windows password?

Today we live in a password-drive world which make us have to remember credit card passwords, bank accounts, etc. Of course, it is an effective way to use the same password for getting out of the trouble with many different passwords. But the problem is that if it's compromised and someone finds it, the rest of your identity is at risk. So it is better not to use the same password for all your accounts, at least for your Windows accounts and other important accounts.

Mistake 3: Seldom Change Wind
ows Password

For many users, they may never remember to change Windows password unless they forgot Windows password. No matter how strong a password is, it may get hacked if the user doesn't change it all the time. Most computer experts and online security professionals recommend changing passwords and account login information at least once every three months. How long have you ever changed Windows password? Reset it frequantly and get into the habit of changing your password on regular basis.

Mistake 4: Forgot Windows password Without A Password Reset Disk

With the Windows password reset disk feature, it is no longer a big problem when you forgot Windows password. Computer experts strongly suggest that users create a password reset disk when setting a new password, which they will not lose access to your files and information. But many users in fact ignore the importance of the Windows password reset disk until they forgot or lost. If you haven't create a password reset disk, just start to create one now. You will find everything is still in order though password is gone.

This is the survey which we have collected from Security Community, more info about password management survey, go to its official site.
If you cannot afford to reinstall computer with your computer data lost after you forgot Windows password, an effective option is to use Windows password recovery tool like Windows Password Unlocker to reset your forgotten Windows password. it guarentee that no data will be lost after Windows password reset in 4 steps.
