IQ Computer Services Reveals The Top 4 Common Password Mistakes, Alexandria, Virginia

Think of your computer like your home: it stores as much of your important information just as your home stores your most prized possessions, which is why you need to keep it protected at all costs. The best way to do that? Rely on a professional. Luckily, IQ Computer Services is here to provide you with all the help you need for all kinds of computer support, including virus removal, laptop screen repair and network services.

Located in Alexandria, Virginia, IQ Computer Services is a professional, affordable service that serves both individuals and small businesses around the Northern Virginia area. Not only do they provide on-site computer repair, but for those on the go, they can access your computer through the Internet to diagnose and fix the problem! They even offer a "Fix My PC" package that includes a number of common computer problems at a cheap, fixed price.

Here, IQ Computer Services reveals the top four common password mistakes, and shows you how to secure your computer with ease:

  • Not changing your password periodically: Just because someone doesn't know it now doesn't mean they won't figure it out later. Especially when you're going through a network change or need network repair, your password is susceptible. Change it often.
  • Making your password hints too obvious: Your password hint should never give away your entire password. Make sure it's a hint only you will figure out.
  • Not using both upper and lower case characters: Having a combination of both ensures that even if someone knows the word, they will have a hard time figuring out the combination of both uppercase and lowercase characters.
  • Having short passwords: Although the standard guideline is typically eight characters, IQ Computer Services recommends at least 14 characters for ultimate protection.
