Avoid names

Your name or the name of your loved ones is the first things pops up in your head when thinking of a new password and so it does in hacker’s mind when he is thinking of your prospective passwords. Always try to avoid names while setting up a password as they are the easiest to crack.

Typing

Character length

The shorter your password is, the easier it is to crack. It will take the hacker few guesses to break into your account if your password is really short. Make sure to use 12 characters or more in your password to make it strong. Keep in mind, longer passwords are always difficult to guess.

Combinations

It is always wise to use a combination of alphabets, numbers and symbols to make it absolutely immune to hacking. Nobody can guess the pattern and characters used by you in your password. and if you have difficulty in remembering a password that contains symbols and number, you can use smileys like “:);P:(“ in your password to make it easy for you to remember.
