How to Create a Simple but Strong Password
Do not use your name or surname, birth date, birth place or pet's name as your password. Anyone who knows you well can easily guess your password. A simple password is easy to crack using password cracker programs, so you should avoid using easy to guess and easy to crack passwords.
To start creating a password that is simple to remember but strong enough to beat password crackers, try thinking of a phrase or sentence that only you will remember. Do not reveal the phrase to anyone you know.
Creating a simple password that is easy to remember using a phrase:
Example phrase: Trust no one, know yourself before knowing others and do not speak for others.
To create a simple password based on the above phrase, take the first letter of each word and you have TNOKYBKOADNSFO as password. This password is a simple but weak password. Making your password a strong password:
Now that you have an easy to remember password from your phrase, you should start to make it a strong password by replacing the letters with other characters. One strong password from the above simple password is to remember it as TN1KYB4KO&DNS4O. What we did there is we replaced O which is "one" to number 1 character, replaced B for "before" to B4, also replace "for" with number 4 and replaced A of "and" to &. Now that you have a strong password, it is still not a 100% strong password according to Password Checker. To make that the password is a 100% strong password, replace all letter O's with the number 0. You'll have now TN1KYB4K0&DNS40 which is a 100% strong password that you can use as hotmail password!
