How To Create Strong Passwords You’ll Remember

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 less than that, this is younger than 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?

7 Best Project Management Apps to Boost Productivity

Project management doesn’t need to be a complicated thing, not if you have apps that make things a whole lot simpler. When you have project management apps, you can take care of your team, tasks and deadlines, without even being in the office. You don’t even have to spend a lot of money to get most of the apps you might need.

Here are the 7 best project management apps to super boost your team’s productivity:

1. Basecamp

    It’s probably the most well-known project management app out there. It allows you to organize projects that act as a central location for everything and contains such things as to-do lists, notes, events, files, and much more.

    It is user-friendly, and has a free 30-day trial period. After that, the plan is $99 per month.

              7. Microsoft Project

                This is one of the most commonly-used project management apps. However, it is also one of the most difficult apps to use. It does have a lot of features that are popular with project managers, which is why we have chosen to include in on this list. You can customize reports, track burn rates, and stay on track until projects are complete.

                The basic plan starts with $7 per month, which allows you project team members to collaborate in the cloud, via web browser or mobile.
