Today we often use passwords for various applications such as email, blogs, social websites (facebook, twitter), or perhaps also to our cell phones. So how good or strong password that you use? The easiest way to find out is to calculate the likelihood we can guess passwords or in other words the possibility of which can be produced from a long string of characters or letters that you use in your password. More and more combinations that may be generated, it will be increasingly difficult to guess your password or hacked.
A simple example like this. If you use a cell phone using a password that is a 4 digit number, then chances are your phone password can be guessed is about 1 in 10,000 (figures 0000 up to 9999). If you use 8 characters for your email password, then it is likely to guess your password is 26 x 26 x 26 x 26 x 26 x 26 26 x 26 = 208 827 064 576 or more than 208.8 billion possibilities! but if you use your name … like “putriayu” or “ekoparto” it can increase the likelihood of predictable only in a matter of dozens of possibilities!
Therefore, if you want to create a good password you should not use the name (either your name, parents, relatives, siblings, people close to you), date (either date of birth, celebration, or special days), the words that you usually fave or enjoy, a commonly used word, or word that is predictable people (because they know the inherent vice of your choice).
There are a few tips for creating passwords:
* Use digit combination of numbers and letters
* Use characters like “@#$_%%^&*(” or the other if possible.
For example, use words that you will remember but hard to guess people, for example: “7an & / gi”.
* If possible, use a variety of characters or more letters. For example, if the letter “A” and “a” are considered different, then use these variations. For example: “7AN & / gi”. The possibility to guess it: more than 44.23 trillion!
The essence of making a good password is actually your confidentiality. How far / strong you are holding your password to not be notified to the other person, or convenience of others to guess your password. Therefore, if you’ve finished using an application, be it email, facebook, or anything else, immediately do the “sign-out” or “logout”.
Also, if possible change the passwords on a regular basis, say once a month or when a high risk to change the password once a week.
But if you are a forgetful, then to try to make it easier to make a password passwords pattern known only to you. for example, use and remember simple words like “maju2x”, “2 + TWO = four ‘, and so forth. But remember, that words are only you and God alone knows
