Quick Tips to Create Difficult Password
The first step is all about keeping in mind that you cannot and should not use only simple sequences as your passwords. Wondering, what does password simple sequence means?
According to survey data, a simple number sequence password like ‘12345’ or a letter sequence password like ‘hijklmn’ are the simplest ones to hack.
According to again a survey, it is seen that people tend to include their birthday, birth month or birth year in their passwords. All these three details are easily available from your Facebook, Instagram or Google accounts and a hacker can access these pieces of information very easily. So, forget about these events to include in the passwords.
In the third tip, start making your password with a combination of letters, symbols and numbers. The password should be at least 8 spaces long. The password can be longer than 8 spaces but should never be shorter.
Well, you need not worry with the password being short as most services have a mandatory rule that a password should be at least 8 characters long. Play with case of the letters as well. Be creative with the symbols as well and use the symbols like -, +, *, ~.
These are symbols that no one really uses in a password and thus will make the password stronger. For example, [email protected]%6.
In the fourth step throw in at least 4 to 5 words along with the numbers and symbols to make it even stronger. Use words that are completely unrelated to each other.
Like if you use a word from any kind of sports then use a word from the world of animals next. A good example can be 9rAbbitoscaR#TomatO8asTin*.
The step is again an advice actually. Do not simply copy paste words that are there in a dictionary. If you do fall in love with a word from a dictionary though, it is best to complicate it by replacing letters with numbers or symbols.
Like enjambment can become en7am$&34t. You can also try and misspell the word on purpose to make the password stronger while replacing the letters with symbols and numbers.
