If you don't regularly change your Microsoft password, you're not giving security as much attention as you should. There are a few simple things you can do to keep your account as secure as possible: Use a password manager such as Enpass, set up two-factor authentication and, perhaps most important, change your password frequently.
In the case of the last option, it can be hard to remember or even to set yourself a reminder to do it. However, your Microsoft Account can make you change your password at regular intervals.
Here's how to enable the feature.
- Login at account.microsoft.com.
- Click on security.
- Select change password.
- Check the box labeled make me change my password every 72 days.
It's that simple. You don't have to remember to change the password yourself or even create a reminder. Instead, you can let your account do all the work for you.
