Last week I decided that a year and a bit was long enough to leave all of my online passwords unchanged. So I had to get to grips with the mammoth job of changing everything!
Coming up with the “perfect” password was pretty tricky, and a simpleton like me doesn’t really know what makes up a good one so I turned to good old Google and found this little website.
I’m not going to go into the science or technicalities behind this password strength checker because, and quite frankly, I wouldn’t have a clue how it works. All I know is it is simple to use and understand.
It only took me a few minutes to come up with a password which was a decent length, mix and variation of characters, numbers, symbols, upper case and lower case letters, and I soon understood which direction I should go in order to come up with a strong password which was easy to remember and secure!
Now like me, you can start what seems a never ending process of changing the security your entire online presence!
(I have nothing to do with this site, no connections at all. I’m not responsible if anything happens to you or your security from using this checker – I am simply recommending it as it’s worked for me!)
