Keyword best practices pertain to complexity, change frequency and uniqueness. Each best practice is intended to mitigate known attack methods and harden your online identities to both prevent compromise and limit the damage if account compromise occurs anyway.

The use of a password manager also often facilitates password maintenance through actionable reports that can identify passwords due for a change.
