Without a password, your personal information is at the fingertips of would-be cyber thieves. Even if you do have a password, it may still be vulnerable to a sustained, brute-force attack. Passwords should be complex yet easy to remember; a balance that is sometimes difficult to achieve. There are also alternate kinds of passwords you may not be as familiar with, such as picture passwords and personal identification numbers, which may be easier for you to use. Learn about passwords, alternate passwords, as well as other methods of keeping your data secure, through this training video.

Of course, there is more to security than just passwords. You can change your privacy settings in order to filter out unwanted information, and you can utilize a built-in Windows program called Defender in order to help keep your internet secure. If you want to share information with other people, you can utilize the SkyDrive to share files with individuals of your choosing.

Keeping your information safe is critical, so utilize the Windows 8.1 features described in this online training and better protect your personal information from those who may wish to steal it.
