Creating a strong, easy-to-remember password that is nonetheless difficult to guess can be quite the trick…
The perfect password may not exist, Etay Maor, an executive security adviser at IBM Security, told Business Insider. But he said there was a technique you could use to create passwords that’d be tough for hackers to figure out but easy to keep top of mind. Maor suggests creating a “passphrase” instead of a password.
The passphrase technique is exactly what it sounds like. It entails coming up with a memorable phrase you can use in place of a password, since the longer the password is, the more difficult it is for a machine to crack.
For example, you could choose a phrase like “I want to go to a Bon Jovi concert” and turn that into a password. “A computer will take, I don’t want to say an infinite amount of time, but a not realistic amount of time, to be able to guess it,” Maor said.
MacDailyNews Take: Please, do not use “I want to go to a Bon Jovi concert” as your password — or as a sentence, ever.
