In terms of the people’s increasing insecurity consciousness, we are intended to use passwords to protect our secrets.This leads to that we are surrounded by passwordsin the world today. So we should know how to create strong passwords, or we can say we should note these things.

Do not use real words. There are tools available to help attackers guess your password. With today’s computing power, it doesn’t take long to try every word in the dictionary and find your password, so it is best if you do not use real words for your password.

Do not use personal information. You should not use personal information as your password. It is very easy for someone to guess things like your last name, pet’s name, child’s birth date, telephone number and other similar details.

Use a passphrase. Rather than trying to remember a password created using various character types which is also not a word from the dictionary, you can use a passphrase. Think up a sentence or a line from a song or poem that you like and create a password using the first letter from each word. This password cannot be guessed. But you’d better remember it in heart,or else,you need reset windows 7 password or others.

Mix different character types. You can make a password much more secure by mixing different types of characters. Use some uppercase letters along with lowercase letters, numbers and even special characters such as “&” or “%”.With so much complicated combination, I think no people can guess it.

Having told you so many tips to create a strong password, you should now have a good knowledge of it. Therefore, you should apply it into your Widows 7 password which can protect your privacy better. But even you forgot Widows 7 password, you can reset it with additional help.
