How do I create a safe password?

Create secure, easy-to-remember passwords

Step 1:

Think of a word or phrase you can remember.

corinthian

Step 2:

Capitalize the first letter.

Corinthian

Step 3:

Change the last vowel to a number.

Corinthi4n

Step 4:

Add special character to the end of the word.

Corinthi4n&

Step 5:

Add the name of the website you are using for this password.

Corinthi4n&yahoo

 

While this technique lets us reuse the phrase-generated part of the password on a number of different websites, it would still be a bad idea to use it on a site like a bank account which contains high-value information. Sites like that deserve their own password selection phrase.

No approach to security can guarantee 100% security, and nothing in this guide is meant to provide any warranty or guarantee of the security of your passwords.

Some websites may not allow the use of some or all special characters. Please be aware of what special characters are allowed to be used.
