Managed IT Services Buckhead recently took a call from a client in Buckhead, Georgia about passwords, so we thought that we would share what we told that caller.
The best passwords are really unpredictable. Here are some of the passwords to avoid:
- Password1 (or some variation)
- Your birthday
- Your pet’s name
- Single words
- Words all in capital or lowercase letters
- Passwords with just letters and numbers
How to create a great password
One of the best ways to create a great password is to use a sentence. Here are a few examples:
CllMShmlMobydick1851 – The first sentence of Moby Dick with the name of the book and the year it was published.
MaggieThatcheris1HOTlady! – Margaret Thatcher is one hot lady!
BlameItAllOnMyRoots1983#1 – The first line of Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places” and your birth year and #1
You can also go to www.passwordgenerator.net and use their random password generator. You can choose how long you want you password to be and it will create a complete random password with a phrase to remember it.
Your New Password: rxHL4<Fy-k6U*[>e
Remember your password: rope xbox HULU LAPTOP 4 < FRUIT yelp – korean 6 USA * [ > egg
