    How to make a strong password

    Post by PC on Sun Feb 14, 2010 5:09 pm

    Hello,

    Because my rank is the forum technician that I feel obligated to make these tips on creating a strong password. As a general rule of thumb, passwords should be 7 or 14 character long. Of course, the 14 character one is preferable.


    • All passwords should have a number, mixed case, and one symbol. For example, readTEHru13$ is a strong password.
    • All passwords should be at least 7 characters long because of how encryption works. The strongest passwords are multiples of 7.
    • Use "slang" or non-English words as your password. This makes it harder for someone to brute-force the password.
    • Never use a personal identifier as your password. If you lived on 3668 Creekside Court, don't make the password 3668Creekside.
    • Use a different password for different things; 1 poorly written script could end up resulting you loosing all of your accounts.
    Please take these guidelines seriously because they are a big factor when it comes to security on the forums. I am stressing this on Moderators and Administrators.

    Thank you,
    PC

    Cold.

    Nice post, PC.

    I suppose that means that cold isn't a very good password for me [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
