Password what to use and how to use it ?


Now a days Passwords for people is like we don't love them but can't live without them. So, here is something that help you to stay secure. I am sure that you know many of the following widely available and well-known guidelines for creating more secure passwords, but just in case, here is a recap:
  1. Use a mix upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters for example, Th1$1$@Samp!3
  2. Replace some letters with numbers (for example, replace i with 1 and e with 3)
  3. Do not include your name or other personal information (such as spouse /children, street address, school, birthdays, and anniversaries).
  4. Use nonsense phrases, misspellings, substitutions, or before-and-after words and phrases combining two unrelated words or phrases, such as “Avangers007” "Highway2R@bbitH0le" "TheE4gl3hasALandD0wnUnder"
  5. Combine two words by using a special character for example, P1zza&Cok3 Tra1n@ndT1ck3t, H4rry!P0t3r.
  6. Use a combination of all the other tips in this list for example, “Harry porter becomes H4rry!P0t3r, Pizza and coke becomes P1zza&Cok3 etc.
  7. Do not use repeating patterns between changes for example, password1, password2, password3, Most importantly 123456789 should never be used as password.
  8. Do not use the same passwords for work and personal accounts.
  9. Do not use passwords that are too difficult to remember.(keep it 8-14 character)
  10. Use a password manager like KeePass Password Safe, LastPass, Dashlane, Sticky Password, Roboform, TrueKey, Symantec Norton Identity Safe etc
Finally “A password should be like a toothbrush. Use it every day; change it regularly; and DON’T share it with friends.”
