Exclamation How to make a safe password

Welcome to my Guide about keeping your password safe and avoiding hackers.

Step 1. Pick an object, pet, or person that you want to "form your password" around.
Example. Let's say that you have a Dalmation named Sparky. You can use his name.

Step 2. Next, you'll want to add numbers. Make it easy to remember!
Example. Sparky135

Step 3. Add capital letters. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is if the password is case sensitive.
Example. SpArKy135

Step 4. You can also add .'s if your allowed to use symbols.
Example. SpArKy.1.3.5

Reminders.

1. Keep your password short.
2. Make it hard to guess.
3. NEVER give your password to anybody except maybe your parents.

Thanks for reading my guide! I hope it helped!

P.S. NONE of the examples are my password, so don't even try using them.

Default Re: How to make a safe password

A simple way I've used and taught others to come up with good passwords is to use the first letters of words in a phrase or sentence. Starting with a common word isn't always a good idea. When I was in customer support way-back-when and had to ask customers for their password, it was a 50-50 guess that if it was a woman, it was the name of her cat, and if it was a guy, it was his dog. Second best guess after that was a spouse or child's name.

The first thing my two children wanted to use as a password when they first signed up this fall was their dog's name. When I told them that wasn't a good idea, they second choice was each other's name! I had to chuckle, and my wife and I finally convinced them to think of something else they could remember.

For instance, if I were into music, maybe use the EGBDF or FACES mnemonics as a starting point. Or if one of your favorite sayings was "Ain't that the truth!", maybe use 'Attt' to start. Any phrase will do, as long as you can remember it!

But this would be just the starting point, I still highly recommend using the tips from the original poster to make those strings more unique...they're spot-on for helping protect your password from random guessing.

Thanks for sharing that advice with us. It's very helpful. Another thing I like to do for a safe password is use my initials, and add some numbers to it.

Just yesterday someone figured out my password and then CHANGED it. Luckly I have my trusty secret codes and changed it to someting. It USED to be wsxcv2 before I changed it. I still wonder how they guessed it! Thanks for sharing

That same thing happened to one of my kids accounts a few weeks ago. He's still too young to understand just why he shouldn't ever tell anyone his password, even when one of his friends pretends to tell him theirs (but not really).

He came home from school and luckily told me when he couldn't get log on, and we managed to use one of his codes to change it again before they could pilfer his account.

Although bad, this was the perfect incident to scare him into not giving his new password out to anyone else.
