With a new hacking scandal in the news every other week, everyone should be concerned about the security of their online accounts. Here are a few simple techniques for creating strong passwords; and storing them.
Number 1 – How To Create a Strong Password
It’s very important to have a strong and powerful password. An awesome way of generating a strong password that is too hard to guess but still easy enough to remember is to devise a phrase that contains ordinary names, words of people or places (so they start with a capital letter) and also numbers.
Your password is then generated by taking the first letters of each word except: for the numbers which are represented by their figures. So, if your phrase was “California is close to Mexico” the password would be ‘CictM’.
One of the most important things (and I’m sure you’ve heard it before) is to avoid using the following types of passwords, which a surprising number of people use: password, QWERTY, 123456, 00000 and Letmein.
You can also substitute characters for numbers, symbols or punctuation. You could replace any letter ‘i’s with ‘!’s and any ‘a’s with ‘4’s and your password would become much harder to crack. For example, if you were to choose Christmas, it becomes Chr!stm4s, which is a much stronger password.
Great! You now have your secure password for each of your online accounts, now how do you store them all?
