How to choose a secure password that is easy to remember

What makes a strong password ?

  • It should be more than 8 characters
  • It should contain alphabets, numbers and special characters like @#$%^&
  • Use capital as well as small letters
  • Do not use dictionary words or common words like 123, password, pass, your birth date, your name, etc
  • Do not use same password for all your logins. Use a base word to help you remember your password but the password should not be exactly same.

How to create a password that is strong and easy to remember :

  1. Choose a base word lets say I choose I hate pass
  2. Now add some capital letters I Hate Pass
    Make the 1st letter of every word capital.
  3. Add special characters I@Hate$Pass
    Replace the spaces with special characters.
  4. Add some numbers I9@Hate8$Pass16
    Add the the number of character in alphabets of 1st letter of each word at the end of word. Like here I is the 9th letter in alphabets so I added 9 after I similarly 8 for H and 16 for P.
  5. That’s it ! You have a strong password ready. Not you can modify the pattern slightly to use the same base word multiple times. For eg : while adding the number in the 4th step take the value of the last character in the word like 5 for E from Hate and 19 for S from Pass.
