Strong password tutoriaL

Recommended Posts

there has been a lot of account hacking lately. the biggest reason for that are weak passwords.
now, here's a tutorial how to make your password strong.

1) choose a phrase, sentence or a word that has about 10 or more letters
for an example i'll take this:

cute small green doormat


- avoid your name, names of people who are close to you etc. - choose random words!

then misspell some words (eg. doormat - dormat, small - smol)

cute smol green dormat

[b]2) replace some letters with numbers[/b] (eg: I=1, s=2, e=3, a=4, t=7 o=0) that visually look a bit like those letters

cu73 sm0l gr33n d0rm4t


[b]3) on every few characters, add a [size=24]. or a space (or remove a space)[/size][/b]

cu.73.sm0l gr3.3n .d0.rm.4t


[b]4) add some random characters to it, and make some letters big, some small.[/b]

cU.73.sm0Ly gr3.3n d0.Rm.4tQ



and there you go - from ''cute small green doormat'' you get a much stronger password ''cU.73.sm0Ly gr3.3n d0.Rm.4tQ''

hahah good tip but a little hard to remember?
usually if you add like a exclamtion mark or random symbol and use capitals then it becomes a strong password too.
too many words is hard to remember and so are spaces so doubling words and sticking them together is a good (Y)
