More Secure Password

Written By: Sustines E. Laplana

The hacking incident that happend on March 8, 2004 in my previous websites: The Way To Know Sueboy (geocities.com/slaplana) and Pasugo-Online (pasugo-online.com) by Rovick Solismo Balunsay (ADD_Rovhick), an Ang Dating Daan and ADD-CIT member, has brought me to find ways in making my password more secure. The following are the things that should be considered when creating a password:

1.) A password shouldnt be related to you as a user, like names, birthday, hometown, pets name or anything that is obviously related to you. You friend or someone who knew you can possibly try to steal your password by using those things.

2.) Dont use simple terms found in dictionaries as password because some hackers do use script in guessing your passwords using those temrs.

3.) Dontt use sequential numbers too.

4.) Longer passwords are better than shorter ones.

5.) Combination of number and word terms are more secured than using number or word terms alone. But the combination of number and word terms with special characters is far more secured than those mentioned above. The example of this are m0nd@y (Monday) and $0u1$$@1v@710n (SoulsSalvation).
