Best Practices for a Secure Password

  • Creating a strong password is crucial for online security. We recommend your password be at least six characters and include at least one uppercase letter and one number. 
  • Avoid obvious choices like birthdays or common words for your password. Don't recycle passwords across different accounts to reduce the risk of a security breach. 
  • Regularly update your passwords every three to six months to stay ahead of potential threats. Keep your BitcoinIRA account secure by using these best practices.
