First, think of a thing, date, phrase, event, place or anything that is unique only to you. It must be at least 8 characters long.

I used the following rules to replace the regular characters with special characters. You can form your own rule.

Replace all the a with @
Replace all the s with $
Repalce any space with %
Replace any o with 0
Replace any i with !

To really make it secure and hard for others to guess, you will need to change your password every few months. Some of you may find it a chore to come up with new passwords every month. Here is what you can do:

Instead of appending the site name to the end, you can now append it to the front, in the middle or even split the site name out into few parts. For example:

M@keD@m!enU$e0h0f
M@keU$eD@m!en%0h

You can also change the replacement characters such as @ for ~ and whatsoever.

What makes a password strong (or weak)?

A strong password:

Is at least eight characters long.

Does not contain your user name, real name, or company name.

Does not contain a complete word.

Is significantly different from previous passwords.

Contains characters from each of the following four categories:

Character category
Examples
Uppercase letters
A, B, C
Lowercase letters
a, b, c
Numbers
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Symbols found on the keyboard (all keyboard characters not defined as letters or numerals) and spaces
` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = { } [ ] \ | : ; " ' < > , . ? /
A password might meet all the criteria above and still be a weak password. For example, Hello2U! meets all the criteria for a strong password listed above, but is still weak because it contains a complete word. H3ll0 2 U! is a stronger alternative because it replaces some of the letters in the complete word with numbers and also includes spaces.

Help yourself remember your strong password by following these tips:

Create an acronym from an easy-to-remember piece of information. For example, pick a phrase that is meaningful to you, such as My son's birthday is 12 December, 2004. Using that phrase as your guide, you might use Msbi12/Dec,4 for your password.

Substitute numbers, symbols, and misspellings for letters or words in an easy-to-remember phrase. For example, My son's birthday is 12 December, 2004 could become Mi$un's Brthd8iz 12124 (it's OK to use spaces in your password).

Relate your password to a favorite hobby or sport. For example, I love to play badminton could become ILuv2PlayB@dm1nt()n.

alphanumeric with special characters

Author: hima24PostPosted:     Post subject:

Omg. This many posts for creating strong password...

Author: PRISTINE89PostPosted:     Post subject:

The length of the alphabet you use is the most important - so, using a combination of letters, numbers and special characters is stronger than using a long password with just letters, for example

The alphanumerics are a great way ...

hell one may have to save them all somewhere.. whiich is fraught with dangers of its own

Creating strong passwords may seem like a daunting task, especially when the recommendation is to have a unique password for each site you visit. Anyone would be intimidated if they had to create and memorize multiple passwords like Wt4e-79P-B13^qS.

Author: drsmyeliPostPosted:     Post subject:

if u change pass words frequently -- choose any favorite theme you like names of --cars, phones, fruits. and make ur fav alphabet caps, choose signs above the numbers for that month number

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Use length to your advantage. Create a password that has eight or more characters since this is usually the minimum for most password requirements. The longer the password the more secure it is likely to be.

Form a "random" sequence of words and/or letters. Create a phrase or series of letter that is seemingly "random" but is easy to remember. Call this your "base-word."

Example: My children are Jessie, Cassey, Michael and Jenny, so my base-word becomes "jecamije".
Example: My first house was on Spooner Street becomes "houseonspooner".
