How to choose a great and secure password?

Strong Password

Passwords we use them alot in our daily lives but do we have a secure and strong password? Don’t get worried and confused because in this post we are going to tell you the things you need to use and avoid for having great and secure passwords

Basics
Use at least eight characters, the more characters the better really, but most people will find anything more than about 15 characters difficult to remember.
Use a random mixture of characters, upper and lower case, numbers, punctuation, spaces and symbols.
Don’t use a word found in a dictionary, English or foreign.
Never use the same password twice.

 

Things to avoid
Don’t just add a single digit or symbol before or after a word. e.g. “apple1″
Don’t double up a single word. e.g. “appleapple”
Don’t simply reverse a word. e.g. “elppa”
Don’t just remove the vowels. e.g. “ppl”
Key sequences that can easily be repeated. e.g. “qwerty”,”asdf” etc.
Don’t just garble letters, e.g. converting e to 3, L or i to 1, o to 0. as in “z3r0-10v3″
