So, here in this article i'l guide you with creating a secure password and some tips to avoid it from hacking.
Before moving on to the main topic, let's understand why do we need to create a strong password?

A password is generally used to gain access to a online account. It can be social media,wallet accounts,net banking,etc..
A password is like a locker which protects your important stuff. Someone else can open your locker by using a masterkey right? Yeah! They can!!
So what you do next is you will make the security of the locker more strongly by replacing it with more secure one.
You keep a complex or easy password so that only you can have access to it. But, what if someone hacks your password and enters into your account without letting you know? 😖
Strange right? This is possible for hackers to hack your account if your password is too weak.
Suppose your password is strong, it will be difficult to crack.

Here are Top 5 killer tips for creating a strong password for your account.
  1. Include Symbols - (~!@#$%^&*())){}|\/[];:'",.<>? )
  2. Include Numbers - ( 1234567890 )
  3. Include Lowercase characters - ( abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz )
  4. Include Uppercase characters - ( ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ )
  5. Include Minimum 8 characters - ( ********  )
  6. Maximum Characters - Depends upon your memory capacity.
Remember : The more number of characters = the more secure password.
Combination of symbols,numbers,uppercase and lowercase characters makes a password hard to crack.
Do not keep a lengthy password because it will be hard to remember and chances are that you will forget it too.
Example: abcdef@123!!

Few more tips :

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.

Phishing websites are generally scam or spam websites which are used to reveal personal information. Such as username,email,passwords and credit card numbers from a user.
