We cannot live in this world isolated from cable TV, internet or the home phone. They have become so strongly integrated with our life style that we use them for communicating with our kids, do banking, carry on with our business, and buy our daily requirements...almost anything. Companies like Cox Cable are making that happen and they are not alone. In fact more and more companies that provide communication service have mushroomed, and still more are on the anvil if the proliferation we see is any indication. At the core of all this is the software that makes things happen. If you are a casual internet user then raking your brains over passwords may not be your cup of tea. On the other hand if you are prolific user of the internet even to carry out a minor transaction involving money and privacy, then you need to understand why it is important to have secure passwords and many of them at that.

Here are some tips that you can follow to make passwords. What your passwords are going to be is a matter of personal preference, but some website will not let have your way, especially the banking websites. They have conditions that you will have to meet meticulously. You will be required to keep to a minimum character length, include one or more special character and of course some numerals and text characters. Do not be exasperated if some of them are so complex to remember; they have been made that way with you and your money in mind. Follow them along with sound usage practices and even the most able of the phishing sites will not be able to steal your identity.

There are many places you will be using the passwords; one for your bank transaction, Pay Pal account, your email id, on demand service on cable TVs, ATM transactions, and so on. Remembering all of them can be tedious and that is accepted, but your hard earned money is precious too. So what if you have one strong password and use it for all your transactions on the internet? Sorry if that is what you have in mind then you are mistaken. Presume you have an email id and a hacker is able to decode you password. Then what prevent him from accessing your Pay Pal account with the same password? Hope you got my point. So as rule keep a separate password for every internet place where you are required to use it.

If you are fortunate enough to deal with a phrase like password, not all site will allow that, then it should work wonderfully for you. They are the most secure of all but then the luxury is not available at all sites and that you must remember. The next best you can do is use all the first letter of a long phrase that you coin for yourself. Here is an example: If your favorite phrase is “pack my box with 6 bottles of liquor” then you can make your password pmbw6bol. Great isn’t it. Simply follow this rule and add some special character to get that perfect password you are eligible for. Do not however give away your phrase to anyone or even use it. There are conmen everywhere around.

Finally you can use a password checking website to see how strong your password is. They will give you an exact evaluation and let you know about it. The worst thing that you may want to avoid while coining a password is the tendency of normal individuals to use street names in which they live, their car numbers or even their birthdays. If you can help it, keep a safe distance from them. They have all the ingredient that will help hackers guess your password and exactly at that.
