Create a Password

September 24, 2016

Most likely you use the same login and password multiple places.  That is where this becomes a big issue.  For example, if you use the same login and password for an account with that ability to make purchases, like Amazon, someone could have lots of fun.


First, I strongly encourage using a password tool like LastPass or check out,2817,2407168,00.asp


Also you could add a prefix to your passwords identifying the site or store.  If my favorite password is B0bby1955 then I would add -A (B0bby1955-A) for Amazon; -S (B0bby1955-S) for SamsCub.

This isn’t full proof and I strongly recommend stronger passwords, but it is at least a system that makes your passwords unique so the same password does not work everywhere.


Bible verses make good passwords. Romans8:1, you can use your own abbreviation for the book, add a date

Jul2016Rom8:1. If you have to change it in 90 days it become Oct2016Rom8:1.  This has it all, Uppercase, lower case, number and special character and easy to remember.

Create a strong password

  • Strong passwords help prevent unauthorized people from accessing files, programs, and other resources, and should be difficult to guess or crack. A good password:
    • Is at least eight characters long
    • Doesn’t contain your user name, real name, or company name
    • Doesn’t contain a complete word
    • Is significantly different from previous passwords
    • Contains uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols

Some additional password suggestions.
