Here’s a rule that just about everyone knows, but almost no one follows: whenever you create a new password, use a random mixture of letters and numbers, don’t use regular words, and make sure it is a password you have never used before. No one does this because the password would be too difficult to remember.
Here’s an easy way to create a good password that you WILL remember. Instead of thinking of a password, think of a sentence. For example:
I got my driver’s license when I was 16.
That’s easy to remember, right? Then take the first letter of each word of the sentence, and here’s your password:
There we have random letters and numbers that don’t spell a dictionary word. If you wanted to get tricky, you could use the last letter of each word in the sentence. But don’t get so tricky that you can’t remember the method that you used!
