Transcript of Passwords; are yours awe50me or awfu1?

p455w0rd5!
Question.
No password is uncrackable by those that are determined...

luckily for you, those that are good at it, expect to get PAID, so until you are worth some $$$ you are highly unlikely to be a target of professional hackers.

So …

The best you can do is make it difficult and non-trivial to determine your password.
What's the worst password?
The one you've forgotten.
The longer the password, the harder it is to 'guess.'

Many systems require passwords to be at least 8 characters and include letters and numbers.

Some people use 'social engineering' to obtain passwords.


Of course nobody would
write
their password down on paper, or in their organiser... Would they?
But the harder it is to type correctly...
If somebody asks for your password, it's a bad idea to give it to them. Even if they are your 'BFF'.
Substitute numbers for letters; eg, ‘o’ becomes the number ’0′, l = 1, 5 = S, eg p455w0rd!

Maybe throw in a random character like @!?

Use 2 or more short words

Misspell
on
purpose
eg, chocolite = ch0clit

At least one
C
apital
L
etter
