Easy To Remember Passwords That Are A Challenge To Hack

Do you use one password for all/most of your accounts?

When was the last time you changed your password?
 
Since we are at the end of the first quarter in 2012, this is a good time to take a moment to update your passwords. Think of it as a spring-cleaning for your accounts.
 
Here is an easy formula for creating a secure password.

  1. Think of a sentence. For example, “Today chocolate is my favorite sweet treat”
  2. Use the first letter of each word. tcimfst
  3. Capitalize one of the letters. tciMfst
  4. This can be your foundation password, and then add a symbol and a different number for each account. A social media account could be tciMfst-1, an email account could be 2-tciMfst, etc.
