Create strong passwords and try them
A good password should be easy to remember, but difficult for someone else to guess. Uncommon words work well, but only if you use several of them together.
- Non-standard uppercasing (for example, "uPPercasing")
- Non-standard word spelling (for example, "spellllllling")
- Use local idioms
- Unusual numbers and symbols (note: using "$" for "s" or "0" for "o" is fairly common and likely not enough as a security measure).
