Security professionals recommended changing passwords every 30, 60, or 90 days. In offices worldwide, IT policies forced employees to regularly change their passwords.  

There are key times when you should change a password. They include: 

  • After a service discloses a security incident. 
  • There is evidence of unauthorized access to your account. 
  • There is evidence of malware or other compromise of your device. 
  • You shared access to an account with someone else and they no longer use the login. 
  • You logged in to the account on a shared or public computer (such as at a library or hotel). 
  • It’s been a year or more since you last changed the password, especially if you don’t have multi-factor authentication enabled. 

In all these cases, updating your password is a smart precautionary step. A new password ensures that someone can’t abuse your account even if they have the old password. Here we are going to learn how to change Facebook Password.
