By Edited Aug 1, 2016 1 4

In today's online world, Creating a Strong Password That's Easy to Remember is essential to protect your identity and, perhaps more important, your money. Hackers can get into your accounts if your passwords are weak. So if you use the following methods to Create a Strong Password That's Easy to Remember, you will be less likely to have someone hack into your accounts.

Things You Will Need

Imagination and the desire to generate a strong password for yourself.

Step 1

You can remember long passwords by associating them with a phrase that you won't forget.

For example, the date and place of your birth can generate a strong password. "I was born on 6/3/79 in Milwaukee at Misercordia Hospital" becomes the password iwbo6379im@mh. Use the first letter of each word, all the numbers (no slashes) and for the word "at" use @.

Step 2

I'm sure that, given a little thought, you can generate other such examples yourself for strong, easy to remember passwords.

Here are some examples:

"My Favorite Rock and Roll star of all time is Elvis Pressley" becomes the password mfrarsoatiep.

"When I was in 5th grade, I had a crush on Jamie" becomes the password wiwi5gihacoj.

"The last 4 digits of my social security number are 6291" becomes the password tl4domssna6291.

"The license plate on my Honda is DSR179" becomes the password tlponhidsr179.

"I was a cheerleader for 2 years at Irvine High school" becomes the password iwacf2yaihs.

"My Bank of America Branch is at 237 Oak Avenue" becomes the password mboabia237oa.

"I hope to live to be 100 years old" becomes the password ihtltb100yo.

"When I was 7 years old, I got a puppy named Rascal" becomes the password wiw7yoigapnr.

Use your imagination and you'll see that the possibilities are endless. Coming up with a phrase that's meaningful to you will make the generation of a Strong Password That's Easy to Remember relatively easy.

Tips & Warnings

Experts suggest that the most secure passwords include letters, numbers and symbols. These all-inclusive passwords may be a bit more difficult to come up with. Perhaps you could try something about your childhood: "I lived at 2669 Pine Avenue until I was 12 years old" becomes the password il@2669pauiw12yo.

Remember slashes and arithmetic symbols are not allowed in most passwords. The particular site you access generally will tell you what symbols you may or may not use.

This is really brilliant! Can't believe anyone would be able to decode these. And by the way, my password would be: ihtltb110yo!

Thanks for the help. We should always use a strong password to protect our online privacy. However, I don't take risk of creating a password. I simply use aafter.com to create it for me. I just need to type password: in AAfter's search box and press enter to get one.
