Password Reset

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.


Random Passwords: smart passwords

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.  Click on this picture to watch a quick video for tips for smart passwords.

Crackers use different dictionaries: English words, names, foreign words, phonetic patterns and so on for roots; two digits, dates, single symbols and so on for appendages. They run the dictionaries with various capitalizations and common substitutions: "$" for "s", "@" for "a", "1″ for "l" and so on. This guessing strategy quickly breaks about two-thirds of all passwords.
