How To Create A Strong Password You Can Remember
First off, let’s take a look at the first two commandments of what makes a strong password. They are …
1. The longer your password the better, ex: kdkjlf049i5kflslljfda9s95jfd
2. Do not use common phrases or personal information, ex: mypassword, or 1822ElmStreet.
Here’s a chart showing how long it takes to crack a password based on the length of the password:
a12Kd8ie – 20 minutes
a12Kd8ie5 – 5 hours
a12Kd8ie58 – 3 days
a12Kd8ie58h – 4 months
a12Kd8ie58h4 – 26 years
As you can see from the above passwords, the longer your password is the longer it will take a hacker to
crack it. And if it’s really long a hacker will give up and move on to easier pickings.
The only problem here is that a long password will be hard to remember. So you need to create a long
password that’s easy to remember. The way to do that is to create a phrase you’ll remember. Here’s an
Phrase: I went to the store at 9 PM! Password: Iwenttothestore@9PM!
This password would be extremely hard to crack and very easy to remember.
Remembering all the passwords for you various accounts is an impossible task if you have a lot of them, but
there are two easy solutions:
1. If you only need a few passwords for you online accounts, just add the initials of the account name to
your master password. For instance, if you bank at Bank Of America and your master password is
Iwenttothestore@9PM!, then just add BOA to it – Iwenttothestore@9PM!BOA.
2. If you have a lot of passwords, use an online password manager like Last Pass. With a password manager
you create a password and enter it into the manager’s database.
When you visit a website that requires a password Last Pass automatically displays it. You can either click on
the password to enter the site, or you can have your password set up so that you can enter the site
To be absolutely secure, make sure you create an easy-to-remember master password to access the Last
The advantages of using Last Pass are:
1.Last Pass is free, and it’s easy to use once you get the hang of it.
2. You can create ridiculously long passwords that would be impossible to crack, ex:
3. You can give your master password to someone you trust so they can access your bank account site and
other important sites in the event of your death.
Thousands of bank accounts, credit cards, and other important sites are being hacked every day, so don’t
wait to create strong passwords for your accounts. Do it today!
