How To Ensure Windows Password safety __LINK__

Set Passwords must meet complexity requirements to Enabled. This policy setting, combined with a minimum password length of 8, ensures that there are at least 159,238,157,238,528 different possibilities for a single password. This setting makes a brute force attack difficult, but still not impossible.

When combined with a Minimum password length of 8, this policy setting ensures that the number of different possibilities for a single password is so great that it's difficult (but possible) for a brute force attack to succeed. (If the Minimum password length policy setting is increased, the average amount of time necessary for a successful attack also increases.)

Compressed files, also known as .zip files, are one of the most convenient ways of transferring data from one computer to another. You can essentially pack gigabytes upon gigabytes of files into a single place, then send it to just about anyone in a single transfer. Because of its great use, many people look to protect their .zip files with a password to ensure only those with permission can unpack the contents.

WinRAR is an application that allows you to create and manage .zip files, including password protection. The free trial allows you to indefinitely manage your compressed files, and regular updates ensure that your experience is always the best.

Regular audits also can help you ensure your password policies are protecting your systems against attacks. Events related to Windows Server password policy are recorded in the Security Event Log on the default domain controller. By reviewing these logs, system administrators can determine who made changes to password policy settings, and when and where (on what domain controller) each change happened. For additional important tips on auditing password policy GPOs, see the Active Directory Group Policy Auditing Quick Reference Guide.

Another reason why you might want to set up password protection for your folders is to ensure secure and private data transfers. This is especially useful in work environments in cases when you want to share files only with select coworkers who have the password.

Microsoft LAPS is used in order to prevent stale, duplicate, or overly simplistic passwords. These situations leave systems vulnerable to either intentional or accidental data breaches. LAPS ensures that passwords change regularly and are adequately complex.

A password manager is essentially an encrypted digital vault that stores secure password login information you use to access apps and accounts on your mobile device, websites and other services. In addition to keeping your identity, credentials and sensitive data safe, the best password managers also have a password generator to create strong, unique passwords and ensure you aren't using the same password in multiple places. (Password generation really comes in clutch when you can't come up with yet another unique password on the fly for the latest must-have app.)

LastPass recently disclosed a November 2022 security breach that built on an earlier August breach. The incidents allowed "an unknown threat actor" to obtain unencrypted basic customer data (including names, email and billing addresses, phone numbers and IP addresses) along with encrypted files. While the latter files remain protected by users' master passwords, the ongoing chain of incidents mean that existing LastPass customers -- at the very least -- should ensure their master passwords are secure, meaning they follow best practices when creating or changing passwords.

This ensures your account stays secure in case of a data breach. It also means that if you forget your master password, there may not be a way to recover your account through the company. Because of that, a few password managers offer DIY kits to help you recover your account on your own. Worst-case scenario, you start over with a new password manager account and then reset and save passwords for all your accounts and apps.
