Make Unique Passwords But Easy To Remember

Often netizens use birth dates to be used as online account passwords. Even though it is vulnerable to security.

The solution uses a unique combination. The problem with using unique passwords is hard to remember. As a result we often reset the password because we forget.

“There is still a lot of misinterpretation of the meaning of strong passwords. Many websites now demand complex passwords consisting of

at least eight or more upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters. This is often the user’s nightmare, “said David Jacoby, security researcher at Kaspersky Lab’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT).

David also shared the steps for making strong and easy to remember passwords.

Step 1: Create your “static row” (password section that doesn’t change)

Think of phrases, song lyrics, excerpts from movies, children’s poems, or similar things that impress you

Take the first letter from the first three to five words

Between each letter add special characters: @ or # and others

From now on, you can start stringing your own unique passwords based on steps

above.

Step 2: Add the strength of the association

When you think of online accounts that require passwords (such as Facebook, Twitter, eBay, dating sites, online banking, shopping, or gaming sites and more), write the first word as a word related to the related site. For example, if you create a password for Facebook, you can associate it

Facebook in blue on the logo: then, just add the word “blue” in capital letters. Then put the word at the end of the “static row” before.

“For example the phrase you think is ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, How I Wonder What You Are’ and the special character you want to use is

#, the password for your Facebook is something like: T # T # L # S # Hblue, “David pointed out.

“It does not make sense when you see it. But, because of its personal nature, you understand the system used to generate the password and its relation to the site, it will be easy for you to remember it,” he concluded.
