4 Steps To A Strong Password

Experts agree that there is no such thing as a perfect password, and a committed hacker can crack any password, given enough time and the right 'dictionary' or 'brute force' tools. But just like breaking into a car, if the protection is strong enough, the hacker will become discouraged and given up before the protection fails.Here are the four steps to a strong password listed below.

Start With A Base Word Phrase

A good password starts with a base word phrase. This means: choose a memorable catchphrase, quotation, or easy-to-remember saying, and take the first letter from each word. Choose a phrase that is memorable to you. Example are- Can't see the Forest Through the Trees (cstfttt) ; If the Shoe Fits, Wear It (itsfwi) ; You Can Lead a Horse to Water (yclahtw) or I Think, Therefore I Am (ittia).

Lengthen The Phrase

Passwords start to become strong at six characters long. While a long password can be annoying to type, it really helps to slow down brute force hacker attacks. A good tip is to lengthen your password by adding the website name or computer software name to the base phrase. This can be-cstfttGmail, itsfwiEpinions, yclahtwWin7, ittiaAboutdotcom etc. Passwords that are 15 characters and more are extremely strong, because Microsoft Windows will not store scrambled passwords in hidden files once they are 15 characters or longer.

Scramble The Phrase

Scrambling does not necessarily mean rearranging the letters. Rather, scrambling your password can effectively be achieved by swapping one or more of the password letters with a non-alphabetic character, and then purposely including uppercase and lower case letters within the password. Scrambling creatively uses the shift key, punctuation marks, the @ or % symbols, and even semi-colons and periods. Using numbers as substitutes for letters is another strong scrambling technique. Examples are-cstftttGmail@il, ycl@htwWin7, etc.

Rotate Or Change Your Password Regularly

You should rotate your passwords, as a matter of computer hygiene. If you use different passwords for different websites, you can rotate portions of your passwords every few weeks. Note that rotation parts of the password, not the entire passwords, will help deter hackers from stealing your phrases. If you can memories three or more passwords at the same time, then you are in good shape to resist brute force hacker attacks.
