  • World Password Day Tips

    May 3, 2018

    Here are a few common password mistakes to avoid when crafting passwords: 

    1. Using the same password for everything, or passwords that are only different by one character

    2. Using passwords that are a single dictionary word (Cat, Dog, Football, Password, Etc.)

    3. Creating passwords from personal or publicly available data (Birthday, SSN, Previous Address, Children's names, Etc.)

    4. Sharing passwords with others (Don't do it!)

    5. Creating short passwords (less than 8 characters. I recommend 10-12 characters as the minimum)

    6. Never changing your password (Passwords should be changed periodically. 90-day password rotation is common for windows passwords, but changing your personal passwords every 6 or 9-months is also recommended)

     

    Here is a list of the top 20 passwords used in 2017... If you use any of these, or anything close, it's time for a password upgrade!

    1. 123456

    2. password

    3. 12345678

    4. qwerty

    5. 12345

    6. 123456789

    7. letmein

    8. 1234567

    9. football

    10. iloveyou

    11. admin

    12. welcome

    13. monkey

    14. login

    15. abc123

    16. starwars

    17. 123123

    18. dragon

  • Embark Tuesday Tips - Types of Credit

    December 5, 2017

    When it comes to your credit, “mixing” things up can be a good thing. Having a mix of different types of loans and credit accounts can improve your credit score. However, be careful not to open too many credit accounts, if you don’t intend to use them. Having too many open accounts can negatively affect your score. 

    Mix things up just enough until you find the perfect blend.

  • Embark Tuesday Tips - Your Credit Score... It's A Balancing Act!

    November 21, 2017

    Credit Cards sometimes get a bad rap.  When used properly however, they can help to improve your credit score. 

    The credit scoring system looks at how much money is owed on an account in relation to how much is available to borrow.  If a high percentage of a person’s available credit is used, it could indicate they’re overextended which could lead to late or missed payments. 

    So remember…keeping your balances in line (30% or less of the credit limit) will keep your score in line.

    If you would like to have a “Free Financial Review” of your credit, please give us a call at 1.406.727.7300 or 1.800.823.9595.
