When it's saying incorrect password

Good morning you lovely people and welcome to my midweek Wednesday Blog.

Today we're talking about when you get told "you're password is incorrect"

Whenever you sign into everything it always wants something different for a password. Some want Capital Letters, Numbers, Special Character, Not in sequence, 8 to 20 characters and it gets so confusing.

We're always told never write your passwords down due to safety and security of your account and don't have passwords the same. With all of this it is not surprising that every know and again we forget our passwords.

I want to cover about how to keep these passwords safe and how to remember them easily.

Option 1:

I was once given a piece of advice to think of my favourite phrase or saying from a film, tv series or book and take the first letters of the sentence to create my password.

So for example...:

Creativity is contagious pass it on - Albert Einstein

Would become: Cicpioae but if it had to include a number Cicpioa3 and and special character Cicpioa3!

If you can dream it, you can do it - Walt Disney

Would become: Iycdiycdi with a number Iycdiucd1 and with a special character Iycdiycd1!

This way you don't need to write it down as much as you should remember a phrase that you relate to. Which is a great piece of information I've always remembered.

Option 2:

The other way of remembering your password without writing your password down directly would be to write it down in code. So you take your password and turn it into a rememberable phrase or saying that only you can relate to.

So for example:

Email Address and Fanta45!

This could be turned into email and fav drink, house number n symbol

Staryeyes15 and Candle1108

This could be turned it into SE and smelly anniversary

It's whatever you can associate with the username and password you have selected for certain sites and apps. We all no everyone has different ways of associating words together, in some case partners, friends and family may all take the same word and have completely different words to associate the same thing differently.
