Here are 5 tips for creating a strong password that is easy to remember:
- Use different character classes- Many systems require you to use a variety of character classes. Letters from A to Z are a class, numbers from 0 to 9 are another, and symbols are also a class. Here at Mail2World we give you the freedom to choose your own password combinations but encourage you to use a variety of characters so that your password is difficult to guess.
- Use numbers for words- using numbers for words to create a password provide you with an advantage. First, the phrases are easy to remember. Second, it will be difficult for someone to guess these helpful phrases unless they know you really well.
- Secrecy- Choose word phrases and password combinations that you don’t often discuss. People shouldn’t be able to guess your password just by knowing your favorite saying.
- Separate Words with numbers and symbols- Examples of this are phrases like “mail2joe” or “Kit!2!Kat” are phrases that use different character classes.
- Change your Password often- You should consider changing your password very 30 to 45 days. Changing your password will help ensure your account remains private and secure.
