How To Create Strong Passwords You’ll Remember

If you like the idea of using strong passwords that are hard as nails to crack, but fall apart trying to remember numbers and symbols – like me – here are some tips that could save you your next identity theft.

This method works by creating meanings for symbols:

! excitement, strong emotion
@ the letter A, the word “at”
# number, pound, tic-tac-toe
$ money, value, the letter S
% a part of something
^ raised eyebrow, upside down V
& the word “and”, this and that, twins
( the letter c, the moon
) the moon; anything lunar; crazy
* sunny, bright, starry
+ adding one thing to another
= balance, equanimity, this equals that
> this is greater than that, this is older than that
? unknown, variable, questionable
~ water, wind

Then you incorporate these into your password something like this:

1. Your oldest child’s initials are MWP
2. Your next oldest child’s initials are SEP
3. They were born in 1981 and 1983, respectively

Potential password: Mwp81>83Sep

Interesting idea. Have your own?
