Passwords for Facebook

Many people ask, what is the right password for Facebook? Well, the answer is easy, there is not one but many passwords that fit. Just follow these basic rules:

  • Do not use any part of your name or login name. Not even reversed.
  • Do not use your birthday or year of birth.
  • Are you a fan of something? Do not use that or parts of it. So Michael or Jacko, Lady Gaga or similar things are off limits.
  • Change it frequently, at least every 3 to 6 month. You can modify it slightly to make it easier to remember. So instead of Fihs42@Usa you will use Fihs84@Ger.
  • Just fell in love? That name of her or him is too easy to guess or crack.
  • Make your password at least 8 characters long, 12 would be great. Do not use words from a dictionary.
  • Put in numbers and characters, such as -,;.ß?=)(!? … you know what I mean.
  • Uppercase and lowercase letters please.
  • Do not repeat yourself. ttTT6655!! looks good, but is too obvious.

Try to make your password complicated but easy to remember for you. Build yourself a bridge to remember it. For example: “Lady Gaga is extremely 6y, even before 7 am.“  can be turned into LGie6y,eb7am. Of course, now this password is useless, because I explained it here. But you hopefully got the idea.
