If you have a cell phone, sign up to get text messages anytime anyone tries to logon to your facebook account. Someone tried logging onto mine. I changed my password to one that is strong. For your email, change your password to something that no one knows and also change your security questions for your protection as well.

In order to make a strong password, you should think of a password that has no personal significance such as your birthday or your name. Then use mixed letters and symbols.Try to memorize and don't write them for anyone might see them.Make it long if possible and do not use the same password for everything. You can also make an algorithm.hope this helps.

How are you in typing? Got a nice speed? If not, make sure that while you typing the password, it should not be on the visibility of someone. If you feel that someone observing, noticing, do not use passwords. Whenever you set a password, you can use most of the characters. So, you can adopt non aphpa numeric and a mix of symbols like &*#Q_+ and not it down confidentially, if you forget the same. Also, though it is difficult to remeber, you can simply use or construct something like your year of birth and that is 1985 and the password you can construct in such a way that 'ninetyeightyfive' or the mix of ninetyseventyfive_1975. Again, you are awere that you born in 1985 and just type date of birth & month - now it will look like ninetyseventyfive_eighteenapril. Now, if someone looking on what you are typing cannot follow what you are typing. Onlything, you should be through on what you are typing and try to type it without mistakes. I can type these things so fast and without mistkes. Or you can simply type - i am going to switzerland - iamgoingtoswiterland - my date of birth is not july 17 - mydateofbirthisnotjuly17. Such a construction can make you to build a strong password at the same time so easy to remember also. Similary you can creat meaningful but complicated passwords which can be easily rememberd at the same time no one can follow. my current password is - 'it is not a good habit to ask other's passords' itisnotagoodhabittoaskother'spasswords How is it? So think of something funny. If you find it is difficult to type fast and without mistakes, use something which is common for fast typing and make a simple construction of sentence and practice to type and once you are ok for typing fact, keep it as your passowrd. hahaha

The rule of thumb here is not to use any personal information. (Well, unless that information is only known by yourself ) One tip I guess is to choose a random word. It might not even be a word at all but a bunch of letters. Then mixed it in with a few numbers and you've got yourself a strong password. Just make sure you could easily remember it. If you have a hard time recalling passwords and stuff, do what I do. I keep a small notebook with all my passwords written on it.

hi heartcj1921! most people need to create strong passwords that they need to remember. especially nowadays where in we are prone to open numerous accounts online adn with the proliferation of identity theft, one needs to be cautious so as not to fall prey to hackers. creating a strong password is quite easy. you just have to remember these steps: 1) check the password management rules of the site that you are creating a password for. usually, these sites have minimum and maximum number of characters for their passwords. it would also say if they accept special characters such as @, $, %,*, etc. it will also say if they accept alpha-numeric passwords and uppercase/lowercase passwords. normally, a site will say if your password strenght is good or not. read and understand the rules and follow these. 2) you probably use a common password for all your accounts as this is easy to remember. the draw back with this one is if your password is discovered, it puts to risks all your online accounts. as much as possible refrain from using the exact same password for your accounts. you may opt to use a common word that you always remember and use that as a 'base' for your password. as an exmaple, let's use your mylot username, 'heartcj'. 3) with 'heartcj' as your base password, you need to put the '@' sign at the end of your base password and add an attachment similar to that of a domain name. the use of the symbol '@' helps you to recall your password easily. common domain names are @yahoo.com, @hotmail.com, or @gmail.com. you may use the actual site's domain name for your password. so for your mylot account, you will now have 'email@example.com' as a password. for your yahoo email account, it'll be 'firstname.lastname@example.org' or for your msn account, email@example.com'. 4) to further strengthen your password, you may opt to add either numbers or other special characters at the end of the password. it may be as simple as '123' or '###'. let's use '123' for this discussion. taking all these steps into account and using our earlier examples, your passwords will be the following: mylot - firstname.lastname@example.org yahoo - email@example.com msn - firstname.lastname@example.org 5) other tips, never use your actual email address as your password. also, you may use a capital letter to start your password and like mentioned above, add numbers or special characters at the end to further strengthen your password. hope these tips in makign a strong password help you out heart. as for making sure that your acounts are secured, never use public computers. these includes computers in rental shops and libraries. always ensure that you are properly shuttign down your accounts and closing the tabs that you used. cheers and happy mylotting!!!

Just using numbers and letters is enough. Using symbols and other unusual letters might make it stronger but it will be harder for you to remember. The best way is to mix letters and numbers and not just use numbers on the front or the back. You can use my username as an example because it mixes both letters and numbers.
