Password Trick

I can’t for the life of me remember where I saw this – never bookmarked it unfortunately. If you, like most people, have a million passwords to remember, you probably end up using the same one for multiple accounts. This is not a good idea. If someone finds out the password, they have access to your entire online life.

Set up passwords like this, to make them easy to remember and hard to hack. Let’s assume your password is ‘password’.

Facebook: fbpassword or passwordfb

Twitter: twpassword or passwordtw

GMail: gmpassowrd or passwordgm

I really liked this idea. The guy did mention though that you should figure out your own system – just in case. So use single letters (fpassword) or triple (fbapassword, where a = account).
