Maybe friends of friends – people you don’t really know – come to your residence and ask for your WiFi password. Maybe you share your Netflix credentials with a close friend, but you don’t know who they are sharing it with afterwards. Do you change your own passwords regularly?
- You could also demonstrate a connection to your current work environment. Maybe you use 2-factor authentication at work. Maybe you must change your passwords every 90 days. Maybe you regularly work at home over your company’s VPN. Does it work well? Or is it just easier to go to work? If you are not employed, demonstrate a connection to your desired work environment.
