QuoteHow to create a strong password:

Step 1 – think of a word that is meaningful to you or your purpose. For the sake of the example, we'll choose "password"
Step 2 – add case sensitivity for some of the letters; for instance – PASSword
Step 4 – add numbers that are meaningful to you between the letters – PASS26word
Step 5 – increase the length and strength of the password with symbols and punctuation. – !PASS26word
Step 6 – Consider putting this word in a phrase or a silly (and hard to predict) maths equation: iLove!PASS26word or !PASS26word +5 = Onehundred
Step 7 – Since cybercriminals typicalls use a "dictionary attack" to "guess" passwords., add a word in another language: !PASS26wordHOLA
