I want my all my website passwords to be safe and secure to the maximum level. While trying to create passwords for certain websites, I receive prompts to use alphanumeric keys to create the password. What is this? What are the things needed to consider in choosing the best password?
Alphanumeric keys for inputting password
Alphanumeric password can be considered as a strong password but off course it is not yet the strongest password. By the way, Alphanumeric is a combination of numbers and alphabet. Alpha means alphabet and numeric means numeric combine the two and it will become alphanumeric.
The strongest password is the combination of upper and lower case of alphabet, numeric and special characters. Special characters are those found on the shift of numbers in your keyboard. Lower cases are those small letters of the alphabet and upper cases are the capital letters. You can make your password like this: “[email protected]#” – this is hard to manipulateor to brute force. Also avoid using password like birthdays, names, places, and words found in the dictionary.
