Strong passwords are not those easily remembered, but those that are safe. A password cracker will face an exponentially difficult task to crack passwords which comprise of lower case and uppercase letters, numbers and special characters, if we choose a reasonable length, e.g. RlboE*3NAH8R, without any logic sequences.
Find below tools and techniques for generating strong passwords, along with reviews and recommendations for password manager software which helps you maintain your lists as you only need to remember one master password. Please note that you can come up with computationally difficult passwords on your own, but it’s usually best to use a password generating software, and that the security of your credentials can be further improved by a hard-to-guess login name.
