Build An Uncrackable Password

Do you hate changing your password? Here are some tips on creating an uncrackable password.

Technology is constantly expanding, and with new technology comes better ways of hacking into seemingly secure platforms. At the end of the day, 81% of data breaches are due to poor passwords. Too many people change their passwords to something simple and easy to hack, because let’s face it… remembering a complex password is nearly impossible – so we say.

> Use a phrase

  • Around 12 letters long
  • Something simple to remember, but hard to crack
  • Can integrate things you like or do to make it more memorable
  • Example: Panasonic microwaves create micro waves to superheat soup

> Keep each account unique

  • Never use the same password more than once

> Play with spellings

  • Use homonyms
    • Two instead of to
    • Ant instead of Aunt
  • Example: Pana$onic microwavez create micro wavez 2 $uperheat $oup

> Random capitalization and numbers

  • Use numbers and capitalizations but keep it memorable
    • If you go overboard, your password will be impossible to remember
  • Idea: You can use a capital letter on the second word of every password
  • Idea: You can use the same number behind the first word of every password
  • Example: Pana$onic microwaves Create micro Wavez 2 Superheat $oup
