These days, cybersecurity is an absolute must. Your VyprVPN account is a valuable commodity and worth protecting. As one of the purposes of a VPN is to help protect against theft of private information, the potential for loss of account access due to intrusion after a weak password was overcome has a sad irony to it. Having a strong, secure password convention is a good way to avoid loss of control over the account.
When creating a password, the requirements are 8-14 digits. Here are some recommendations for a strong password:
- Be sure to include lower-case, upper-case, numbers and special characters (ie: @$^*!)
- Try to avoid spelling recognizable words as these are simpler to decipher than non-recognizable passwords. This includes words using special characters in place of letters
- Avoid finishing the password on a number as well. It's common for passwords to end with 1 or 0 so it's a factor that those who exploit weak passwords will look for
