How to be safe online
use strong passwords!
A form of the day you were born is not a strong password (2Apr01). Niether is just your name(Gilbert). A strong password is something like a letter code. for example i will use the phrase: i love pizza with pepperoni and sausage, so i put as my password: ilpwp&s because i used the first letter of every word.
Use numbers & symbols to your advantage!
You could also do a long word and replace all the letters that look like numbers with numbers. for example, the word notebook could be used as n0teb00k. Also the word airplane could be used as @1rpl@n3.
