Mumbai Police is way ahead of all other police departments when it comes to sharing a message through all-time favourite content. In its latest post, the police department has shared a still from the film Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix for sensitising people about cyber security.
In the snippet that the Mumbai Police has shared, they have replaced the word ‘Pheonix’ with ‘Password’. The idea behind the post is to make people aware about the importance of strong passwords. It is important to note that securing an account with a strong password and changing the password on regular intervals are two key factors that can keep your account safe from miscreants.
Captioning the tweet, the department said, “Let the order of your password be 'riddikulus.' Don't let anyone 'manage mischief' on your accounts. Use strong passwords and change them at regular intervals. #CyberSecurity.”
As expected, Harry Potter fans could not keep calm and were unable to control excitement, many of them have commented on how they relate to it. A person wrote how one of the lead characters of the series, Ron Weasley, too, reacted to the post. She wrote, “As Ronald Weasley would say, “this is bloody brilliant!”
