Use punctuation and symbols to "complicate" it further.

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Example: Add random punctuation to create "jecamije_22191612".
Example: Add a symbol to the word to make "houseonspooner#1500".

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Create complexity with upper and lowercase letters.

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Example: Take advantage of adding capital letter to create "JeCaMiJe22191612".
Example: Add the house number to the end of the base-word to create "houseonSpooner1500".

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Generate similar but altered passwords. Use the same or similar base-words to help you remember your passwords easily without making them "too" easy to crack.

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Example: "JeCaMiJe_22191612" can become "mykidsJeCaMiJe-90807060" or "12161922*JeCaMiJe".
Example: "HouseonSpooner#1500" can become "1500*myfirstHouseonSpooner" or "***15HouseonSpooner00".

Change your passwords periodically or whenever it may have become compromised. Frequent password changing is required by company policy or federal law in some businesses, but may encourage users to choose weaker passwords or write down their password near their computers. Don't re-use an expired password.

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Take a word (for example, money), spell it backwards (yenom) and put your birthdate in between. Say you were born February 5, 1974. So it would be yfebe5n19o74m. Hard to remember, yes, but also nearly impossibly to crack.

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

Mixing in numbers and letters (E.G.: j78hu5948h0gy67g) can almost be impossible to crack, so try using that tip. If you're afraid you'll forget your password, write it down in a secure place where you won't forget it.

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

For even more security, try to use "nonsense words." Combine these with numbers to make memorable, secure passwords. For example, "brickbeak9468."

Author: DakyanousPostPosted:     Post subject:

If you have trouble remembering all the passwords you need, try using a password manager, they can store all your passwords securely using a single master password.

Author: thomas1989PostPosted:     Post subject:

One special character plus alternating small and big letters.but write it down some where first

Author: MahazgPostPosted:     Post subject:

One of the ways a professor told us to choose a password was:

Pick up a book and randomly open a page ..... Then write down the first word on the page all in capital followed by the first character you see (usually " . or , ) followed by the number of the page and the last word in small.

Almost guaranteed to be impossible to hack!!! Just don't forget to memorize icon_wink.gif

Author: anjali26PostPosted:     Post subject:

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
` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = { } [ ] \ | : ; " ' < > , . ? /

Author: madhu912PostPosted:     Post subject:

It should be a combination of alfabets with capital and small letters and numericals, with some signs like @ / % / & etc

Author: asdf345PostPosted:     Post subject:

use upper case and lower case, numbers, and symbols, don't use common words

Author: DrShounakBPostPosted:     Post subject:

thanks for the input. but nowadays you need to change your passwords very frequently - how do you start remembering them until and unless you follow a series

Author: drvaibhav63PostPosted:     Post subject:

Creating a safe password is very important as hacking is very common nowadays.
The password should be strong and contain those characters that you will remember though should might find it hard to.
A strong password should have the following features:
1. 7-8 alphabets containing both upper and lowercase characters
2. 4-5 numbers
3. Atleast 2 special characters with. Underscores are very common, so try to use some other characters.

Use symbols for letters, for example,

$ for S
@ for A

That way you can still put together a memorable password, that is diffuclt to crack

Author: skchanduPostPosted:     Post subject:

use Alphabetic ( A to Z) and Numeric ( o to 99 ) and any extra symbol ( like %, $, _, @ ... etc ) numbers to make strong password .. hope this helps. ..

Summary


A good password is made up of a number of different characteristics. For instance, it should be at least 6 - 8 characters long and should include at least two uppercase letters, lowercase letters and numbers. As you mentioned, it shouldn't be obvious. Definitely do not use your children's names or pet's names. For that matter, it shouldn't even be a real word person, place or thing. Use random characters. The more random the sequence of characters, the more secure the password will be.

An example of a secure password would be something like this: Hgs3@4j55nKX!sl

This password is 15 characters long and contains a combination of numbers, symbols, upper and lowercase letters. Since it's long and random, it will be far tougher for someone to hack.

For workstations on a Windows network, Microsoft has developed official password creation rules. These rules are as follows:

Passwords MUST be at least 6 characters long
Passwords MAY NOT contain your username or any part of your full name
Passwords MUST contain characters from at least three of the four class characteristics, which are listed below.
Classes Characteristics:

English Upper Case
English Lower Case
Numerals
Non-Alphanumeric (Punctuation marks and other symbols)
Remember, having a secure password is meaningless if you write it down and leave it where anybody could find it. However, if you have difficulty remembering a random password, then you can use a common word like "password," for example, but add three of the four class characteristics to it to make it more secure, such as "paSSw0rd." While not as secure as a completely random password, it still meets the outlined criteria, thus making it far more efficient then your kid's name.
