NordPass recommends the following password creation methods to prevent your personal information from being stolen using a password that is easy to guess.
・ Do not use repeated characters such as 'aaaa' and '123abc'
· Do not choose passwords based on completely non-confidential personal information such as phone numbers, dates of birth, names, etc.
・ Do not reuse passwords for multiple accounts
・ Password must be 12 characters or more
・ Mix uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols
・ Reset the password every 90 days
