Make Unhackable Password

Edited by Michael Mangada, Anonymous, Nerissa Avisado, Eng and 2 others

Identity theft, scams, and hacking - these are just a few of the security problems and crimes that can hound you as you explore the cyberspace. These cyber crimes can threaten your security. Be warned that hacking is among the biggest woes known in the Internet. Unfortunately, you leave your website open to let everyone in; not so smart, but it is just how it goes in the big web. The problem sets in when some trigger-happy criminals and hackers get to unlock your password, sometimes just for cheap thrill of it. For you, however, it brings a threatening thought that your files, records, and financial information are never safe in the computer. Whoever cracks your password, gets access to these.

Passwords are not supposed to be passed by anyone, except by the account owner. You need to guard it particularly when it is a mine of vital digital data. If you are among those people who do not give much thought to passwords, beware. Keeping your account and website secure requires commitment. Once your account or website "goes live" you are already welcoming everyone inside, and that includes criminal-minded hackers. Once expert hackers make your account or website their target, soon enough they will be able to crack your password. There is no such thing as "uncrackable password" but you can make it harder for them. Your goal is to make that hacking process a difficult one so that they give up and find another target.

    Do you know that ethical hackers use word list that list combinations of possible words that you might use as password?
    This combination is only consists of abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890 and other allowed characters like _ and a period. That's right, brute force password hacking is straight out guessing, but this guessing process is amplified by a computer.

    Now what can you do to prevent this?
    Make an un-hackable password, a password that is not included in every word list or a password that is very easy to remember.

    Off Limits!
    Remember that a wordlist just consists of letters a to z and numbers 0 to 9 and other allowed characters. If you are thinking of including characters like #, $, % or even ? and !, you cannot because these characters are not allowed to be in a password.

    The password making.
    This is very simple. Include letters and numbers. Capitalize the first letter to make it look stronger. Adding a plain SPACE, which is not often done can make a huge difference. Funny, by simply adding space before the password, you can make an un-hackable password.  
    1. Example: If my old password is "nsane_000" simple change it to "nsane_00" (without the quotations I just put it to emphasize the space).
    2. Yes, it's that simple. And if you want to make your password easy to remember, simply choose a password and make it your password on all your accounts so you won't forget it.

    Stay in sync with current OS.
    Be in the know when these updates are available. Get them installed as soon as they are available. Hackers will be hot on your trail. There is no such thing as perfect system or software. These updates try to correct these flaws. There are certain vendors or providers like WordPress that routinely install security patches if and when these become available.

    Install a Firewall.
    This is a security measure that can block all messages and sites from penetrating the server in a local network or the Internet. You have the choice to install this yourself or find an expert who can help you.

    Control access.
    Never let down your guard; choose only the people you trust when it comes to your password. The less people who know your password, the better.

  4. 4
    Use password managers.
    If your idea of a strong and uncrackable password is something long with a lot of different combinations of letters, numbers and allowed symbols, memorizing the "hard-to-remember long passwords" can be very challenging. There is an effective digital remedy; use a password manager.

  5. 5
    Be ready to fend off viruses.
    If your hackers can't get through, they might use a virus called "key logger" to plant in your system and crack your password. To fight these, install, operate and update your antivirus regularly.
