Over the years, my affair with internet has taught me a few things about passwords, which I going to share with you here.

1. Anything on the dictionary can be deciphered. So, its wise to punctuate the passwords with dots, commas. Make it long and complex.

2. Birthdays, phone numbers, addresses, spouses’ nick names – all are very weak passwords. We need to change them to stronger ones by using abbreviations like, I LOVE PAUL becomes ILP and so on..

3. The security question are generally weak. Anyone close to us,would know the answer. We need to change the spellings or customize our own questions.

4. Create strong passwords by using the whole keyboard. Use a mix of upper and lower cases. Use a mix of alphabets , numerals and special characters.
