I wrote earlier on how long it will take hackers to break your password using password strength meter. You can read it up before following this post. Today, I have explained how hackers can crack your password- Facebook, Google accounts, Twitter, website’s back-end etc.
Who is a hacker and what can he/she do?
How can hackers crack my passwords?
But how do they get to guess my password?
- Your name is Bola Agness,
- Instagram @cuteagness93,
- Your nickname is sexybola,
- Born in 1993
- Your mobile number
- Commonly used words
- Informal names by friends
- Weak passwords using dictionary words.
Now, hacker will start arranging these words in his/her word lists and be ready for you. Some of these generated word lists can be;
- Your mobile number etc.
So how do i make strong password against hackers?
Even if your new password is going to be memorable, try it in this format
Name = Bola Agness
Age is 19
Born in 1993
favourite four numbers. May be from phone numbers
Three favorite special characters eg. !@%$*()&_+
Less try to match these
From your name we get “b0agnss”
From 1993, we get 13 ( First and last number)
