A password is a basic security mechanism that consists of a secret passphrase created using alphabetic, numeric, alphanumeric and symbolic characters or a combination. A password is used to restrict access to a system, application or service to only those users who have memorized or stored and/or are authorized to use it. Also, a password needs to be changed frequently, preferably on a monthly basis in order to prevent security issues.
