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.

https://www.stickypassword.com - it works on your computer and mobile android/iPhone. Once you’ve signed up on the website and have an account just download the mobile app. Think of it like keeping all your passwords in a bank account. I use it all the time and I never forget any passwords. (There is another password manager called dashlane but the customer support of this one is really good).

(Should have mentioned it will make passwords for you - just watch the video on their website it explains it all. )

I have a system, a bit like that suggested by Johnny which is great when it works but really annoying when you get a site which does not allow symbols - there are a few out there! This means when I try to enter a password based on my system it throws me when it dont work. It would be good if there was some agreed system that all sites accepted.

My bet is we will all be using password mangers soon like stickypassword. Just let it do the work for you - it will generate passwords for you. Only problem I’ve had is one website said the password it made was too long but you can just edit it to one the wesite accepts.
