Default Guide to picking a secure password and keeping it safe!

With so many people talking about hacking this guide should help you.

First pick a simple word. Take rainbow for example! But this is pretty easy for hackers to guess. So let's spice it up a bit!

Maybe some numbers at the end like 99 something you can remember easily! Your new passowrd in rainbow99! But just to be on the safe side let's do something else to it.

Hackers usually never care about capitalization, but you can! Make a capital r. So now we have Rainbow99!

If your password is a compound word you can do something else. Take Butterfinger for example! You could make it ButterFinger. with both words capitalized!

Just to make your password EXTRA safe put punctuation in it. Back to Rainbow99 it could be Rainbow.99!

Be creative with your password. Something that applies to you. Such as soccerdancer18. This password would be good for someone who enjoys soccer and dance. Maybe the 18 is for your age or year of birth. Make it special to you so it's hard to guess!

I wouln't recommend making your password your username. That is the first thing a hacker would guess.

When making passwords, keep in mind you need to be able to remember it. You can't just type in bbfdsadfjsdfj. Because then how can you remember that? Maybe do intials like your intials and your friends initials put together. Like frhnyk! Looks like a bunch of letters right, but no you can remember it. If you know your name lol!

Also remember when trying to login to websites and you want to login as quick as Possible. So don't make it take forever. DOn't Do this DoGsRoX""""132!!! It takes to long to type correct?

I hope this guide helps you keep your account safe. BYE

Wow! This is a great step by step guide! I am going to change my password right away! Another tip is if you have had more than one password, combine a few of them together in a way you can remember.

Default Re: Guide to picking a secure password and keeping it safe!

You could also put something, like if it said girl in it, you could put grl instead. you could take some letters out of the word, so the word is still understandable but it is with less letters. That would make it more difficult. Take my username for example, instead of horselover it is horselovr (without the E)
