Generating Strong Passwords For Your Accounts
Let's face it! Many people who are getting online now a days are still coming up with passwords that are easily cracked. Then they just wonder why their accounts are getting spammed, deleted, or even worst generating computer crashes. It really is not that difficult to come up with a password for your account that literally can not be hacked into. Well that is if you do it right.
How is it that you should be thinking about passwords for your free accounts, your email accounts, your sites that are requiring you to log in to and you need to supply a password? Well have you tried this method. Once you grasp the hang of this method, you will soon be discovering how you can generate easy to remember strong passwords for any account that you have on the internet. I am going to list these in steps for you. For instructional purposes I am going to use the word jasonyahoos to create these steps.
1. Have the account that you are generating a password for in your mind. Now you are going to want to have this name be at least 8 characters. Now that you have that use a combination of special characters. i.e. "!@#$#%^&*()" What I do is pick one symbol and use it twice at the beginning of the word that I am going to use and then twice at the end of the word. Look below:
2. Now the next step is to capitalize every other letter beginning with the first letter after the special characters. Look at this:
3. The above password is good but it could be so much better. So what I do is pick the letters that I can use another special character for and substitute them out. I still keep the same capitalization though. If the letter that is being substituted out is in the capitalize spot, I just have to remember that the next letter after the substituted letter is lower case. Look at this:
4. That is all there is to it. As you can see above the transformation actually isn't that hard and it uses a combination of special characters, numbers, upper case and lower case characters. I hope this helps you out!
There is something that you have to remember though. Make sure that you notice how your personal accounts accept passwords. Some accounts are not allowed to use special characters, while other accounts may treat upper case and lower case letters the same way. Again this is an easy fix though.
I would recommend that you use a password manager as well. This way just in case you lose or forget a password you know where it is.
