Guide To Create Unpredictable Strong Passwords For Online Accounts And Services

1.Avoid Personal Info : Always avoid personal information to be used as a password.Your personal info can be your birth date,your mobile phone number,driving license number,your spouse name,her birthday etc.This information can be easily predicted by anyone close to you.So never use personal information in passwords.

2.Use Words Which You Never Heard : Most people choose words that they use often.For example a person having an interest in sports will choose a password like 'barcelona','realmadrid' etc.So anyone who knows about his favorite sports can easily predict this simple password in just few attempts.So to create a strong password use topics that you are not familiar with,for e.g 'wu-ji-bi-fan'.This is a chinese proverb and is a strong password due to special symbols in it.So nobody can predict it.To find these kind of words search on google like 'proverbs in chinese or japanese' and choose some tough words from it.

3.Use Of Special Characters : To create strong passwords use of special symbols is must.Without these special symbols and characters your password is just a normal one.You can use any special symbol visible on your computer's keyboard.Avoid @,The dot(.),underscore( _ ) because these are used the most.Try using *$!%^.

4.The Uppercase Letter Phenomena : Using an uppercase letter in your password string will make it highly secure.Because suppose if somebody gets your password and it enters your password then he/she will always get a password error because he/she will never know which letter of the password is uppercase.So make some letters in your password uppercase at alternate positions like A....b..B..M.kK.

5.The Password Length : Your password should have a good length more than 20 characters including a combination of letters,symbols and numbers.Short passwords are always vulnerable no matter how strong they are.The longer the passwords the more secure they are.A 20+ characters password is almost unpredictable if it has been chosen wisely.

6.Don't Forget Numbers : How can you forget numbers ranging from 0-9.These numbers have equal importance to special characters.Their combination is more strong than using simple words.You can use any number ranging from 0-9 to create a strong password.

7.Check Password Strength : While creating an account on google and microsoft you can check the strength of your password by just looking at the password strength meter.The more green the password strength meter the more stronger is your password.

Example of a strong password : Honda.Cbr15x^&.Ghost2Racer$.%%
