The secret to safe PASSWORDS
Here is a simple tip for a secure password that is:
... different for every site or app!
... secure - no dictionary crack could ever find them!
... easy to remember! You never have to write them down.
And no matter how many different passwords you need, you'll never forget a single one.
2 simple steps.
- create a 'seed' word that has special meaning to you. It could be the name of a friend, your hometown, your favorite team, or any word that you will never forget.
It has to be at least 6 letters. Here is an example:
Now change one of the letters to a number, and another to a special character. For example:
dolphins becomes dolph1n$
(change the i to a 1 and s to an $)
Once you start using this seed word for everything - it will be natural to quickly type it.
For each site requiring a password, add a unique ending - a different capital letter or two to the
of the seed.
For example, my seed is dolph1n$ so,
For Regions Bank - use dolph1n$RB
For Facebook - use dolph1n$FB
For Amazon - use dolph1n$A and so on...
Now, all my passwords are very secure.
They all have at least one letter, one number, one upper case, and a special character.
I never user the same password twice.
Because I use it for everything, I never forget my 'seed' word.
If I use 'save my password' on sites and have to get a new phone or computer, it's easy to figure out any password.
I sleep better at night.
Once you begin using this strategy, you won't believe how easy it is.
