-==== Change Your Password Regularly ====+==== Do Not! Change Your Password Regularly ====
  
-Please remember to change your password periodicallyA useful rule of thumb is that one should change the password ​at least once every six months, preferably more often.+Modern resarch has shown that changing passwords regularly is a bad ideaThe important point is to make a strong ​password ​from start.
  
-Make it habit to change your password ​at certain fixed timeseg, when you come back from vacation. Do not change ​the password just before the holidays, but replace ​it afterwards. It obviously increases the chances of remembering the password.+If you have weak password, ​or if you have reason to believe it has become known by someone else; then you should ​change it.
  
 When you change your password, do not write it down. Instead, try to practice logging in and out several times with the new password. Often, repetition is the best way to remember. When you change your password, do not write it down. Instead, try to practice logging in and out several times with the new password.
