Seven Steps to Simplify Personal Password Management


We bring to you seven simple steps to personal password management and to get rid of the password problems – the greatest of them all, to remember.


In these days of computers and smartphones, we use passwords everywhere, everyday and everytime – PC booting password, log in password, facebook, gmail, online banking, membership in a blog, visa, freelance websites, phone screen lock password, data encryption password and the list go on. You must have experienced, at some point or the other, tough task of selecting healthy passwords, and periodically changing it (I don’t know if this idea ever crossed your mind!). But as if that is not enough, we find that the toughest hurdle is to remember and manage all those hateful passwords, here and there. Which one for which one, oh God!

We bring to you seven simple steps to personal password management and to get rid of the password problems – the greatest of them all, to remember.

The most important thing is that passwords must be strong, no matter what. And then comes the importance to remember them when required.

1.         Don’t use obvious names like your’s, family, pet name, your vehicle brand etc.

2.         Don’t use obvious and easy dictionary words.


3.         Sequence of successive alphabets or numbers like ‘abcd’, ‘12345’ etc.

4.         Use alphanumeric characters -lower and upper case, numbers and special characters. You may also use smiley or various emoticons which can help you remember.

5. For different accounts different passwords are recommended to avoid interdependence of account security on one another – in case of one of the accounts being compromised, that should not affect other accounts.

6. You can use the first letters of a phrase.

That constructs to a password – Iatyo20#. The last three characters 20# is an addition of a number you can remember.

7. There are password management solutions available online like Password Manager Pro, Dashlane 4, LastPass, and RoboForm that acts as a vault with a single password to store password database.
