How to Choose a Rock-solid Password
Securing your password is as easy as humming your favourite tune. Here’s how to create an easy-to-remember and secure password:
Step 1: Think of a favorite song, and use the first letter in each word. For instance, The Beatles "I’ve Got to Get You into My Life", could be translated into IGTGYIML.
Step 2: Replace one or two letters of your song acronym with a number and add a special character or two. “IGTGYIML” becomes a stronger password as IG2GYI2ML.
