Password difficult to guess, easy to remember
The challenge seems to be to find a system which provides password hard to guess, yet easy to remember. How can you do:
1. Have an opinion, for example the following random meaning:
Rickard verkar vara en himla trevlig kille som skriver som en kung.
2. Take the first letter of each word:
3. Make some big letters:
RvvehtkssseK. It does not matter what, but choose one system, type last and first.
4. Add a number or two, For example, your cat's birth date:
The result is a password that is difficult to crack, easy to remember, easy to enter, long enough and as long as you adjust my system a little, quite difficult to predict.
The most important mission
But I'm not finished, as a bonus, I'll give you the year's most important task, namely to ensure that you do not use the same password for all your different services.
Already, it has you, everyone does it, no point in denying it. Who can remember 100's of different passwords. But since this is one of the most common ways to hack people's accounts, so I offer you this one simple trick.
For each site you sign up at, add the site's initials / vowels / consonants at the end of the password, for example
RvvehtkssseK06EB (for eBay),
RvvehtkssseK06PP (for Paypal),
RvvehtkssseK06FB (for Facebook) and so on. But do not write out the entire site name because it can be blacklisted and actually quite easily guessed.
Venture out into cyberspace and replace! Change all passwords you can find! And if you find a place where you can not change the password, for example City Networks otherwise excellent cloud services, please send an email to the support team and tell them that this is unacceptable. All services must allow the user to choose their own password. Sending permanent passwords unencrypted in email is not a secure solution, regardless if the password contains all uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers.
And finally a warning to you with his finger on the key policy. Some systems insist on forcing its users to change passwords at regular intervals, for example twice a year,. This is a nuisance and should be removed immediately. If there is no indication that the password has been cleared, so no need to change. If anyone force you to change the risk is just great that you simply switch to a new password and then type it up. Why would you spend the time to learn a password you still have to change a few weeks. For example, if you are after a night out has been dropped to show the card with the code on the back so it might be a good idea to cancel the card.
