make your password a combination of words that you can easily remember

Help yourself remember your strong password by following these tips:
1)Create an acronym from an easy-to-remember piece of information. ...
2)Substitute numbers, symbols, and misspellings for letters or words in an easy-to-remember phrase. ...
3)Relate your password to a favorite hobby or sport.

To prevent your passwords from being hacked by social engineering, brute force or dictionary attack method, you should notice that:
1. Do not use the same password for multiple important accounts.
2. Use a password that has at least 15 characters, use at least one number, one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter and one special symbol.
3. Do not use the names of your families, friends or pets in your passwords.
4. Do not use postcodes, house numbers, phone numbers, birthdates, ID card numbers, social security numbers, and so on in your passwords.
5. Do not use any dictionary word in your passwords.
6. Do not let your Web browsers( FireFox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, IE ) store your passwords, since all passwords saved in Web browsers can be revealed easily.
7. Do not log in to important accounts on the computers of others, or when connected to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, Tor, free VPN or web proxy.

According to the traditional advice — which is
still good — a strong password is:
Has 12 Characters, Minimum : You need
to choose a password that’s long enough.
There’s no minimum password length
everyone agrees on, but you should
generally go for passwords that are a
minimum of 12 to 14 characters in length.
A longer password would be even better.
Includes Numbers, Symbols, Capital
Letters, and Lower-Case Letters: Use a
mix of different types of characters to
make the password harder to crack.
Isn’t a Dictionary Word or Combination of
Dictionary Words: Stay away from obvious
dictionary words and combinations of
dictionary words. Any word on its own is
bad. Any combination of a few words,
especially if they’re obvious, is also bad.
For example, “house” is a terrible
password. “Red house” is also very bad.
Doesn’t Rely on Obvious Substitutions:
Don’t use common substitutions, either —
for example, “H0use” isn’t strong just
because you’ve replaced an o with a 0.
That’s just obvious.
Try to mix it up — for example, “BigHouse$123″
fits many of the requirements here. It’s 12
characters and includes upper-case letters,
lower-case letters, a symbol, and some numbers.
But it’s fairly obvious — it’s a dictionary phrase
where each word is capitalized properly. There’s
only a single symbol, all the numbers are at the
end, and they’re in an easy order to guess.

Create a unique password that's unrelated to your personal information and uses a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols.
For example, you can select a random word or phrase and insert letters and numbers into the beginning, middle, and end to make it extra difficult to guess (such as "[email protected]").


muthaiahtnt


best way for a strong password is it should at least be 8 characters long
it should include alphanumerical as well as symbols in it.
try not to keep DOB or other common information which is of public knowledge as your password
try to think of something unique
make sure that your password is something you can remember easily or wont forget easily
try not to write down your password where it is accessible to other people.
don't use common passwords such as abcde.... as your password
there are innumerable ways to strengthen your password and this post can keep continuing for a long time but i will take my leave here.

feel free to add your comments

Aim DNB Part 2

Best way is to create password in three parts
1st part is the base password which would be a combination of numbers and letters of your choice
second part would be any special character
third part would contain letters of the site on which you are going to use it

this way the password will be unique for each site an strong enough and still you dont land up forgetting them

Use alphabets both upper and lowercase and numbers as we do for net banking

strong pwd
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 [email protected]()n.

Password Management - Password Creation and Maintenance



Enter your User Name and Password only in the space provided for- that you are normally used to.


Any changes from normal make sure there is no attempt to steal your personal information before providing it.


Do not provide User Name and Password on any page popping up by clicking on a hyperlink received through email.


Better practice would be to log into the service by typing in the URL in the address bar after making sure the page opening up is from the genuine service provider.



Do not store passwords in a file on ANY computer system (including Palm Pilots or similar devices) without encryption.
Change passwords at least once every 90 (ninety) days.



Unique Characters: An acceptable password must have at least five (5) different characters. Repeated characters can make for palindromes and make it easier to crack.



Character Types: An acceptable password must have characters from at least three (3) different character types -- upper case, lower case, digits, punctuation, etc.

A password that includes a sample from a rich character set is difficult to crack.



Long Alpha Sequences: An acceptable password must not have an alphabetic sequence any longer than three (3) characters.





Long Digit Sequences: An acceptable password must not have a digit sequence any longer than two (2) characters.



Forbidden Characters: There are a few characters that will cause problems if used in a password - the "delete" character is one of the obvious ones.



Writing down your password: One should never write down a password. Someone may discover the password. Make the password difficult for others to guess or crack but easy for you to memorise and remember.



Passwords should not be any of the following:

Dictionary words (including foreign and technical dictionaries)

Name of a person or a thing, a place, a proper noun, a phone number or a vehicle number

Simple pattern of letters on keyboards
Any of the above reversed or concatenated






One possible method for picking a good password is to make up your own acronym.



Do not let your computer remember your password. Do not accept auto complete option provided by your computer/ browser.





As far as possible do not use un-trusted system to access sensitive service. If you must, change the password on the first occasion immediately thereafter from a trusted system.


Hope this will help.....

Even if you provide strong password but if the system is weak you can't do anything. Further there are other ways to hack you password by tricking you to a fake website which resembles the original or someone may install a key logger in your system(specially public pc).

how to create a strong password
Select a Simple word that you can easily remember. Make use of special characters,number,small and capital letter.
For eg
Sharmi- [email protected]


Ur_fvrt_shan
Aim AIIMS

You can create strong and easy to remember( actually you'll never forget password), by this method.
1. First, think of a sentence which you can easily remember. E.g- I love cricket and dhoni.
2. Take first alphabet from each word of that sentence. In this case, "ilcad". You cqn use this as your password, just remember the sentence, and you can easily remember this seemingly complex password.
3. You can strengthen your password by adding numbers to it which are kind of important to you, like your house number, your old roll number, etc. E.g- ilcad564
4. You can further strengthen your password by adding exclamations to your original sentence( optional). You can use both tge alphabet and symbol related to the expression.
Eg-" hey! I love cricket and dhoni" will give you password "h!ilcad"(add some numbers in end)
