Passing The Word

We all have plenty of accounts all over the place and companies generally make you change your password every month (which is also good practice, but who ever does it with online accounts). We are also told to make sure that passwords are made up of words people can’t guess and include some numbers. So the problem becomes how to create a password that is both easy to remember and difficult to guess.

The odd answer is to make the password longer – make it into a sentence.

If you use Amazon, for example, why not use something like ‘iuseamazontoomuch’. Not that difficult for you to remember, but not that hard to crack. For added security throw some numbers in there as well by swapping an ‘s’ for a ‘2’ or an ‘e’ for a ‘3’.

Now all you have to do is make sure you change it every month.
