Passwords are necessary, but they’re no longer sufficient for keeping malicious characters from accessing sensitive information. In fact, inadequate and stolen passwords are the most common ways hackers get in. Multi-factor authentication, or MFA, with Duo is the best way to protect your accounts. Even if a bad actor does have your password, they won’t be able to gain access. Now that’s protecting your information!

This is called poor password hygiene, and if those weak passwords are cracked, the results can be catastrophic.
