It is important for you to use a strong password to protect your account data. The most commonly used passwords are readily available on the Internet, along with software tools that can use those passwords to quickly make hundreds or even thousands of unauthorised login attempts on an online service within minutes.
While Ola Money takes steps to keep your account safe from such tools, if you have set a password that is easy to guess, or if you have reused a password from a less secure service, your account is put at risk.
A strong and unique password is one of the key factors that contribute to keeping your Ola Money account safe and in your control.
Here are some tips to help you create a good password:
- Always create a new password for your Ola Money account.
If you reuse passwords, and if a hacker is able to access any one of your accounts, they can use the same password to access all your accounts.
- Use a long and complex password
Use a password that is at least 8 characters long and has small letters (a-z), capital letters (A-Z), numbers (0-9), and special symbols (~!@#$%^&*()_+|”:?>< etc). This makes your password harder to guess.
- Avoid easy to guess words
Don’t use your name, your loved ones’ names, birth dates or place names in your passwords. This makes it easier for hackers to guess your passwords.
- Choose passwords that are easy to remember
Pick a sentence that you can remember and create a password from it so that you can easily remember your password. For example “I studied in St.Josephs till class 1” can become “1STU@sjf->c_I” which is easy to remember but difficult to guess.
