Create Strong Passwords – Sing It!

Sing Your Password

I know we featured a password tip in the newsletter just the other day, but in the meantime, one of our loyal readers (thank you Mr. Kenneth J. Roberts!) sent me another great password idea. It’s the method he uses for all of his passwords and I thought it was so great, I just had to pass it along to all of you as well. So, if you ever have trouble coming up with secure passwords, you might want to give this a try. It’s a sure fire way to remember every single one you create. Here we go!

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering why the title to today’s Quick Tip is “Sing Your Password,” right? Well, that’s because a great way to create a new password is to use parts of your favorite songs! An easy way is to pick one of your favorite songs and take the first letter of each word in a phrase in the song. For example, one of my favorite songs is “The Dance” by Garth Brooks and one of the best lines in that song (in my opinion) is, “Our lives are better left to chance.” So, my new password would be “olabltc.”

To make it even more secure, you could add a few numbers or symbols to the end of it as well. I like the number 25, so I would use the password of “olabltc25.” It’s as easy as that! And the best thing is, you’ll never forget your password, because it’s simply some of the letters from your favorite songs. All you have to do is sing the song in your head and you’ll have your password. It’s just another way to make passwords that will keep you as safe as possible. Give it a shot today and see what you can come up with!
