Why are you hiding your password with the black mark? Its "hidden" already. No one can read those black dots.
Hackers and you can never be too cautious

Anyone can agree with me.

The best Password is like this.

Ex: Avast name.
To type the "Avast" make it "sbsdy".

Obviously sdsdy is right side of the Avast letters of the keyboard.

The first try is a bit confusing but if you always do this it makes keyboard type faster.

This method is very effective.

If you guys want long pass.

Ex: Americans = s,rtovsmd

That does a very good job of not using any dictionary words, but it is still relatively easy to brute-force that password.

A strong PW contains no dictionary words, upper and lowercase letters, and special symbols such as %.

That was just a simple example.

Its not good making random letter or numbers memorizing the pass.

Actually you can twist that technique or improve it.

Its up to the users doing it.

You can make this also.

Avast = qfqw5. This is upward.

As i repeat its up to the users making twist on the keyboard technique but your main pass is very easy to memorize.

This is good if someone is looking at you while you logging in your account.

This is excluded for spyware or keylogs.

I make my passwords by starting out with a phrase: spring is here! Then I change the letters accordingly: $pR!n&_Is-h34E!

Then it's just a matter of practicing till I can type that fast.

Its a good password but i think its not simple technique.

And need more practices.

I think you need to memorize for that.



My technique is very simple and yet very effective and very confusing to people looking at you while your typing.

Actually if i didn't say the pattern mostly people here gets time to analyze what i did.

It was only a simple example what i did=)
