Creating Safe & Memorable Passwords
Most business owners have dozens of passwords for various websites, software and services. With over 30,000 web sites hacked per day hackers are now cracking passwords faster than you can process a payment.
The challenge is, how do you develop a strong password for each site without having to remember them?
One solution would be to use a secure password generator and store their passwords in a password manager. The problem with this is that it’s a hassle to constantly be looking up passwords.
We want to share with you a simple technique that will keep your passwords at the top of your mind.
How? By creating an algorithm.
Here’s an example:
- The first digit is the number of characters on the name of the website.
- The second digit is “c” if the number in the first step was odd, and “t” if it was even.
- The third digit is the last letter of the name of the website.
- The fourth digit is “$” if the letter in the previous step was a vowel, and “%” if it was a consonant.
- The last three digits are the first three letters of the name of the website.
- If the site ever requires you to change your password, just add number or alphabet in sequence at the end of the password each time you change it.
Create your own algorithm, memorize the sequence, and you will never forget your unique passwords again.
