One of the most common ways hackers break through your online accounts is by guessing your passwords. So, if you’re using a simple and commonly used password, there is a fat chance that your account can be hacked easily.
Here are four tips to make a memorable but hard to predict website password:
- Use 12 characters minimum. Use passwords with 12 to 14 character length. A longer password is better and more secure.
- Don’t rely on obvious substitution. For example, do not use the word “Volkswagen” as your password if you’re going to replace o with 0 to make it stronger. That’s too obvious. Any hacker can easily guess it.
- Combine numbers, letters, lower-case letters, and symbols. Combine different characters so that your passwords are harder to crack.
- Do not use common words as your password. Use random words. Stay away from obvious dictionary words.
With all of the tips above, I am pretty sure you can create a strong password that is so hard to crack. Think of unique phrases or sentences that you can use as a password – in that way; you can come up with a memorable password.
