As I mentioned above, a strong password is the first level of defense you would be creating against hackers. Strong password in the sense , is a combination of Large Valued Characters or Mixed alphabets & numeric Passwords. It might be a strong password but you will end up forgetting the password. Here we are giving you tips for Keeping your passwords secure and easy to remember.

STEPS:

Step1: Take a Simple Sentence

Example Word : “ SHE LOOKS LIKE MONKEY”

Step2: Remove ‘n’ number of character’s from each word from the end

Example:  Remove last 2 letters from each word

“ SHE LOOKS LIKE MONKEY”

Will become

“SLOOLIMONK”

Now replace some keys with relevant special character.. for ex: a= @, o= Numeric 0, or numeric 0 =  ), or I = !

So new password will be:

SL))L! M)NK

Make sure you remember the method which you are using to create this strong password. For being on the safe side, write down your password in a paper and keep it at a place which is physically inaccessible by anyone apart from you.

Though it’s a easy trick to create a strong password but on a personal level it’s very handy to create a password which you can always remember and is hard to be crack.

    One should use such a password that he himself remembers, else just creating complicated passes won’t work.
