Strong passwords are essential to keep your e-mail, and social media accounts secured from hackers. While many people suggest keeping irrational passwords, it becomes difficult to remember them. On the other hand, weak and standard passwords are very easy to be cracked by anyone.
No worries! By using some tips and tricks, you can keep your password safe and secure. The most important key to account security is an unusual password. So, let's check out some fantastic tricks for the most unusual passwords.
One of the simplest yet fantastic tricks of keeping your password safe is using a combination of numbers and letters. But you must be smart enough to set your password in an easy way for example: Instead of writing 'L1nuxS3rv3r2o!6' keep your password simple '!ThisIsMyOwn2016LinuxServer!'
Combine two dissimilar words for creating strong passwords. For e.g, Blendictionary (Blend and Dictionary), Not obvious (Not and Obvious). You can make the password alphanumeric according to your convenience.
How about creating a password from your favorite phrase? Take the phrase 'Life Is Too Short To Wait.' Use all the initials of this phrase to make a password. Your password becomes 'Litstw' which is actually meaningless and difficult to interpret by anyone.
How about keeping your password 'INCORRECT'? This is one of the most fantastic tricks which can work for anyone who is bad at remembering passwords. Whenever you forget your password, your system will always remind that 'Your password is Incorrect.' Amazing, isn't it?
You can use a combination of words of various languages known by you. As I know both English and Hindi, I can create a password that can't be cracked by anyone. For e.g. Teachai (Chai is a Hindi word for Tea), Lovepyar (Pyar is a Hindi word for Love) etc.
A person can never forget his/her mobile number, right? So, how about converting your numeric mobile number into alphabets? For e.g. If your mobile number is 03231346893, use 'ZeroThreeTwoThreeOneThreeFourSixEightNineThree.' Cool!
Combine the name of your favorite movie and character to create a unique password. For e.g. My favorite Bollywood movie is 'My Name Is Khan' and character is 'James Bond 007.' So, my password becomes MynameisKhan#007 i.e. My name is Khan #007 by adding spaces.
Many people fail to spell 'Czechoslovakia' correctly. So, why not use this word as your password?
You can combine the name of your favorite sex toy and position. For e.g. Vibrator69. It really works!
Just use any number in place of a letter in password to make it unique and unusual. For e.g. pas5word, Annasucks900d etc.
Instead of experimenting with your password, just extend its length by adding either numbers or special characters for e.g. Axis#47B becomes Axis#47B///////.
You can make an unusual password following all the requirements. For e.g. 'Someone to bang' can be written as 'Some12!' This alphanumeric password has a combination of lower and upper case letters with a special character.
