How do you create new password?

picking number from dictionary - I like to pick a number out from the page of a dictionary by just opening it randomly.

I haven’t started any new discussion for nearly 6 weeks. So today I would like to share with my dear mylotters here about pin number or password. As I know most of us like to create our password by using any of the following: 1. date of birth or phone number 2. identity card number 3. create unique and weird combination of numbers that no one could guess the answer. 4. to change the password every now and then depending on moods. 5. others that I’ve never thought of. For me, I am very fond of creating my password using the letters from the names of my favorite flowers and the numbers I draw by opening the pages of the dictionary randomly. I would write down my password somewhere as I am the type of forgetful person. Please kindly share your views here how you create your password and why? Thank you.

Hi there Ikbooi, My password is my future dream. i will say it (type it) all the time to make this dream come trough. I believe in it, this idea is from a book i 've read.It's called 'affirmation'.Not bad huh?

Hi diansinta, it’s really interesting to learn that if saying or typing frequently the same password which is considered to be your future dream would really materialize your wish. I think I would better create one which carries my beautiful dream as well so that my dream would come true later on. posting and good luck.

Thanks for your further detailed explanation diansinta. I have a wonderful one and I won’t use any of those which you have mentioned here. I wonder whether it would lose its magic power if it’s known by others.

Hi tops76, you do choose the much easiest and most convenient way to use the same password for all the sites and Ac when login. Really, it’s that simple that we don’t have to take any trouble to think of any new password for the new site or new Ac anymore. I think for bank Ac it is better not to use the same password for the sake of safety measure. Thanks for your response and posting.

Hi saivenkaat, everyone has his own way to create and to remember the password he had created. It doesn’t matter how it was created or combined, as long as we are always happy with it. And of course it must be able to serve the purpose safely as well. posting and take care.

Hi naseefu, I utterly agree with you that password is something that is highly confidential and shouldn’t be shared with others openly. I believe everyone here knows very well this is the way to protect our own benefit and privacy. Hehe...that’s why I don’t use my real name, phone number or identity card number for creating my passwords. Anyway you are wise enough to use some random numbers to form your password. Happy posting and take good care.

Hi dear UntrudLife, happy to see your new avatar sitting here. I hope you feel comfortable to park your avatar here Yeah, to use one’s birthday as password is quite a common practice as it is the easiest way to be remembered. Anyhow any meaningful numbers or letters related to our loved ones are easier for us to remember as well. Happy posting and good luck.

I tend to forget my passwords sometimes, so I keep them in a handy book. What am thinking of doing is, usuing the same password for almost everything, for it makes it easier to remember, unless where they ask for a comination of letters and numbers,in that case I try to adhere to something easy, like my kids name and # s. Even the year and words. Dont know if that will clear up anthing for you.

Hi dear sun2day, it is a good habit for people like you and me who are always quite forgetful to write down our passwords in somewhere which we could refer at anytime. Well! It’s a good idea to have such way to remember our password by using the same password throughout with slight alteration if needed.

Yeah, rhane, it’s really easy to remember the password created by using the digits of our birthday only. For important password, I think it would be rather risky if to use the actual birthday straight away without any other combination.

I create my password in a unique way. Passwords should be created uniquely anyway so as noone may know it. It should be a secret after all. These days, I create mine through the adjectives I think will describe myself.

Hi nengs, it’s really interesting to know that different person has different unique ways to create his favorite passwords. Great! There are so many adjectives for young guy, so not easy to guess what’s yours. Yeah, the most important thing is the password must be confidential.

Me, i just look around and when i see a first word i counted it and there that will be my password which i will remember everytime I sign in. Sometimes i used the name of my crush or favorite person but not in order.

Hi dear grecychunny, glad to see you dropping in on here again. I like your way to create the password as it’s so simple and convenient just to take first word you encounter as your password. I envy you to have good to have such a good memory to remember your password. Anyway both your crush and favorite person are proud to be chosen as part of the password.

Wow! You have a wonderful memory sunnymouse which could enable you to remember all the passwords with different combinations so well. But I couldn’t, for I don’t have such talent anyway . Once brain was totally blank without any reason but just couldn’t remember the required password and had to leave the atm machine without being able to login my account. I felt rather embarrassed as people there might thought that I was a funny person Happy posting and have a nice day.

Wow! All of you here are wise and clever to use something common that you all can remember well, but no one can guess what actually it really is. Wonderful indeed! My dear friend.

I find it is easier to remember a password if I have a name or number that sticks in my mind but I also try to make sure it is not something that someone who knows me could think of and get in.

Hi jillmalitz, you are wise enough to create your password using something like name or number that you will never forget but no one can get as well.
