How to Make Your Secure Password ?

Consider the examples below. What you’re looking at is a progression of complexity starting off with a very simply password and moving to one that’s much more complex. In the first column are simple words that don’t take much remembering and could probably be found with a good dictionary attack.

  1. Do not use the same password, security question and answer for multiple important accounts.
  2. Do not use postcodes, house numbers, phone numbers, birthdates, ID card numbers, social security numbers, and so on in your passwords.
  3. Do not use any dictionary word in your passwords. Examples of strong passwords: ePYHc~dS*)8$+V-‘ , qzRtC{6rXN3N\RgL , zbfUMZPE6`FC%)sZ. Examples of weak passwords: qwert12345, Gbt3fC79ZmMEFUFJ, 1234567890, 987654321, Norton password.
  4. Protect your computer with firewall and antivirus software, block all incoming connections and all unnecessary outgoing connections with the firewall. Download software from reputable sites only, and verify the MD5 / SHA1 / SHA256 checksum or GPG signature of the installation package whenever possible.
  5. Keep the operating systems( e.g. Windows 7, Windows 10, Mac OS X, iOS, Linux ) and Web browsers( e.g. FireFox, Chrome, IE, Microsoft Edge ) of your devices( e.g. Windows PC, Mac PC, iPhone, iPad, Android tablet ) up-to-date by installing the latest security update.
  6. Do not click the link in an email or SMS message, do not reset your passwords by clicking them, except that you know these messages are not fake.
  7. Do not tell your passwords to anybody in the email.
  8. Distrust and remove bad SSL certificates from your Web browser, otherwise you will NOT be able to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the HTTPS connections which use these certificates.

  9. Use spaces in your password.Many password systems don’t allow actual spaces, but it can be useful to insert one into the middle of a password with systems that do. Alternatively, an underscore “_” or two can serve a similar function.

  10. Choose a password that no one will easily guess or hack.Don’t use a word or phrase of special importance to you—like a birthday or family member. That’s the kind of information that can be discovered by someone doing a little digging.
