MEMORABLE PASSWORD TIPS
Although easy-to-remember passwords are, well, easy to remember, they’re less secure than a password that is completely random.
Following these tips can help you find the right balance between both:
- Create a unique acronym for a sentence or phrase you like (ideally, something uncommon like an inside joke).
- Include phonetic replacements, such as “Luv 2 Laf” for “Love to Laugh”.
- Jumble together some pronounceable syllables, such as “iv,mockRek9”.
KEEP YOUR PASSWORD SECRET
- Never tell anyone your password (including significant others, roommates, coworkers, etc.). If you absolutely need to grant access to someone else, set up a separate username and password for that person.
- Never write your password down, especially not anywhere near your computer.
- Do not store your password in a plain text file on your computer.
- Never send your password, even if it’s over an encrypted connection
- Periodically test your current password
- Update your password every six months
