    Lightbulb How to create a easy to remember strong password

    Passwords can be a key to many things, for example your emails, your Facebook profile, or your bank account. Did you know that some people still use passwords like “password” or “123456″? Needless to say, it’s dangerous to use one and the same simple password for all of your online accounts. Imagine a hacker cracked that one password? To be safe, you should create unique and difficult to crack passwords.

    So do you know how to create a good password? And how can you remember more than one of them? Here are some tips and tricks to maintain individual strongpasswords for all of your online accounts.

    Properties Of A Secured Password
    * it cannot be found in any dictionary.
    * it contains special characters and numbers.
    * it contains a mix of upper and lower case letters.
    * it has a minimum length of 10 characters.
    * it cannot be guessed easily based on user information (birthdate, postal code, phone number etc.)

    I wouldn't suggest using any .tk site for important things. .tk domains are freely available and so you never know who made them. What you can do is to use a good password manager like KeePass or KeePassX.

    One of lekvagwo's links mentions KeePass. I used to remember three to four random passwords (and I have a bad memory). The trick is to type it out in Notepad (when nobody is watching) twenty times consectively. I still don't know my password - my fingers do .

    Of course, now I've graduated to KeePass (KeePassX actually, since I'm on Linux). So I remember only one. It's really not that hard. (I've changed between 7-8 random passwords including the one I currently use for KeePassX, and I can remember at least 5 of them right now).

    Hi,
    Good tips.In my suggestion a strong password must constitute the following
    * It needs to contain special characters such as @#$%^&
    * It must be at least 8 characters long.
    * It must not have any common words such as 123, password, your birth date, your login name and any words that can be found in the dictionary.
    * a variation of capitalization and small letters
