How do I create a secure password?

1. How to create a secure password

  • It should be at least 8 characters long and include both large and small letters, as well as numbers and special characters.
  • Do not use any passwords that you use for other websites
  • Try not to include any personal information (e.g. name, address, birthday, phone or account number).
  • Avoid words/names that are easy to guess (hobbies, favorite club, artist, symbols, etc.).

2. Tip for creating a secure password that's easy to remember
A simple yet effective trick: Think of a sentence and use the first letter of every word including numbers and punctuation as your password. So if we take this example sentence:
"3 years ago I went to Thailand. It was 38 degrees there."
your password would be: "3yaIwtT.Iw38dt."
