7 Tips for creating your new password:
1. The longer the password, the harder it is to crack.
2. Avoid names, places, and dictionary words.
3. Avoid personal information and common words.
4. Use variations on capitalization, spelling, numbers and puncuation.
5. Try abbreviated sentences such as:
(WOO!TCwontSB = Woohoo! The Cowboys won the Superbowl!)
6. Never give anyone your password.
7. Never reuse the same password.
The problem with coming up with a random, unbreakable password is that random passwords are hard to remember. If you're solely typing in characters with no rhyme or reason—a truly random fashion—then you'll likely have as hard a time remembering it as someone will cracking it. So it makes sense to go with a seemingly random password, one that is near impossible for cracking software to recognize but that has meaning or familiarity for you.
