Ideas for Creating Passwords?

Other

Do any one have trouble setting up a new account. Ie THE PASS WORD. I have a lot of trouble with this. It drives me crackers. Once it took me 2 week's to get a pass word that they were happy with. Other sites are happy with the pass word you give them. And I am still getting trouble. Only last week it happen again. But this time only lasted 1 week. Is there any tips you could give me. Thank you.

Hi

As some websites want you to use a password with at least 8 characters, a mix of upper and lower case, a number and a symbol (all of which makes it impossible to remember) I suggest using a memorable street address to create the first half of your password, followed by a symbol (e.g. $) all in upper case, and then use the first four letters of the particular website address for the second part of your password, all in lower case.

So for example, say your memorable address is 28 Devon Road

The first four letters of any password could then be 28DR

Followed by the $ symbol

Then the second half of your password, e.g, for LatestDeals would be the first four letters β€˜late’

Your whole password would then be 28DR$late

Then follow the same pattern to crteate passwords for other sites, e.g. Argos

Then your first half would be the same 28DR$ followed by β€˜argo’ (the first for letters of the website name) and your whole password would be 28DR$argo

There are loads of variations on this technique. The memorable part doesn’t have to be a street address it could be for example your mothers birthday, so 3rd February could be 03FE$

The trick is to make whatever you do memorable and sufficiently jumbled up to create a strong password that cannot be found in any dictionary!

Do not use anything personal....

Nowadays some companies make it so difficult to make passwords.
