Most people now have so many online accounts that without a strong password they could quickly find themselves on the receiving end of a cyber-crime. The problem is that it’s no longer suitable to merely use your pet’s name with “123” tagged on the end (though at least that’s not as bad as “password”, “baseball”, and “dragon” – all of which were in the top ten most common passwords in 2014). On the flipside, it’s nigh-on impossible to remember a random series of numbers, letters, and special characters, especially for every site that you have an account with. You have to have some kind of system in order to keep your sanity.

Digital rights are basically human rights in the internet era. The rights to online privacy and freedom of expression, for example, are really extensions of the equal and inalienable rights laid out in the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. According to the UN, disconnecting people from the internet violates these rights and goes against international law.

Why do digital rights matter? As we increasingly conduct our lives online – shopping, socializing and sharing information – our digital rights, particularly the rights to privacy and freedom of expression, are becoming more important.
