There are different ways of creating passwords for your computer and online accounts. It seems like these days, the usual six characters as length of passwords is not enough. There are sites that when you sign up and you give your desired password, they will let you know whether or not your password is strong. Most of the sites that have it even point out that it is better to have characters that are more than six characters long. For another, they usually recommend that you have numbers and letters in your password. Mixing up uppercase characters along with it is also recommended. Sounds tough, right? Because the the passwords would seem random or something like it.
Here are some tips from different people so that you could have more secure passwords that you could easily remember:
1. Use two words with six characters each.
If you have two words, you have a twelve character long password. But here’s the clincher. You have to make some funky code that you would be replacing some of the letters with numbers. So it could be that every two letter you could replace the letters with numbers that have some signifance or maybe some random numbers.
There are people would use the names of their pets and something else that is totally random and those are combined by mixing the letters, alternating each letter.
2. Use some other language and make a phrase. Then turn it into leet speak.
It is similar to the first suggestion. However this takes it a step further because it will involve other countries’ languages. It is as if you are writing code indeed.
3. Have around three sets of passwords.
Rotate among these three passwords that you have. And change your passwords every so often. At least this makes it more difficult for others to find you your passwords.
