Do you get upset when the password strength shows “weak password” while setting new login credentials? We all have a tough time creating a unique password for every mail account or social media platform. The tougher task is to recollect all passwords. Here are seven tips to remember your passwords
1. Use a combination of letters (lower and upper case), numbers and special characters. You can even use emoticon symbols like :p, or. You definitely won’t forget these!
2. Avoid using your own name, anyone’s name from your family or your company name.
3. Don’t use dictionary words; it’s easy to crack such passwords.
4. Use different passwords for different websites. Because if you set the same password for every website, you will be in deep trouble of one of your accounts is hacked. It will give an easy access to other sites.
