PostSubject: How To Create Strong Passwords…And Remember Them   Sun Aug 09, 2009 11:16 pm

In today’s online world, having a strong password is a must. However, the problem with strong passwords is that they can be difficult to remember. Altering the passwords you currently use by adding a meaningful symbol is one step toward making them difficult for Internet thieves to crack. Here is a list of symbols, some suggested uses, and some examples of how to incorporate them into your passwords:

! excitement, strong emotion
@ the letter A, the word “at”
# number, pound, tic-tac-toe
$ money, value, the letter S
% a part of something
^ raised eyebrow, upside down V
& the word “and”, this and that, twins
( the letter c, the moon
) the moon; anything lunar; crazy
* sunny, bright, starry
+ adding one thing to another
= balance, equanimity, this equals that
< this is less than that, this is younger than that
> this is greater than that, this is older than that
? unknown, variable, questionable
~ water, wind

Here are three examples. When you see the symbol in them, reference the above list to see how it is used.

First example:

1. Your 1st born daughter’s initials are JLM
2. She was born in 1987
3. She has a sunny and bright disposition

Potential password: *1stJ87lm

Second example:

1. You are a twin
2. Your initials are ABO
3. Your twin’s initials are STO
4. The last two digits of your Social Security Number are: 58

Potential password: Abo58&Sto

Third example:

1. Your oldest child’s initials are MWP
2. Your next oldest child’s initials are SEP
3. They were born in 1981 and 1983, respectively

Potential password: Mwp81>83Sep

Here are six more tips for strong passwords:

* Spell letters phonetically: the initials ABO can become AyBeeOh
* Use both upper and lower case letters
* Use at least one number
* Do not begin or end the password with a number
* Make the password at least eight characters
* Practice your new password in your word processor; get it to flow smoothly off your fingers

add ko lng sir..

Remove the Vowel

possible mahirap i hack, pero madaling tandaan..
tulad ng "name" natin madali lng tandaan kc nakadikit na sa'yo yan..
kung gagawin mo sya password possible di mo na mamakalimutan yun kc name mo yun eh.. problema lng madali kng ma hhack.
Ngayon pano magiging strong password ung name mo?
remove the vowel..

example..
gudboygo2hell_remake
password: gdbyg2ll_rmk

mas madali kc basahin o tandaan ang isang word pag may vowel.. pero pag wala by letter na..
