Tips to make a strong password..!!

  • Use as many characters as possible (minimum eight)
  • Include uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Include digits and punctuation marks
  • Don’t use personal information, such as names or birthdays
  • Don’t use words found in a dictionary
  • Use a vanity phrase, for example: “GR8way2B”
  • Use several small words with punctuation marks: “betty,boop$car”
  • Put punctuation in the middle of a word: “Roos%velt”
  • Use an unusual way of contracting a word: “ppcrnsce” instead of ‘peppercornsauce’
  • Use the first letter of each word in a phrase, with a random number in the middle: e.g.“hard to crack this password” = “htc5tp”
