Have you ever created a Password that seemed like a good idea at the time, only later to struggle to remember what it is?
Sometimes the more Amazingly difficult passwords become the more Amazingly difficult to remember.
Have you ever wondered, “what the heck was I thinking”? The other day I asked for a client’s password and it had so many special characters that I thought, "how on earth will they ever remember that password?" I have totally done this to myself too.
Or maybe you have noticed that just because the password makes sense on the keyboard, it doesn't mean it makes sense on a smartphone App. Too often, I'm multi-tasking and find it difficult to keep straight all the special random characters of these passwords, and the order they appear on my KEYBOARD vs PHONE.
Tip – Are you using your phone app more? I use mine all the time and I love it ! So the other day when I had to pause and stare at my phone trying to rack my brain into remembering the special characters and their order I decided enough is enough, and I reset my Password based on one that would work for both my keyboard and phone. I’m not saying create an ABC123 password but instead create a password you can really use without spending 30 minutes to remember.
Specia! Ch@racter Trick$
Create a password which makes sense to you, then incorporate special characters. For example, if you like Red Maple Tress then you could create a password using special characters in place of the letters. Use the @ to replace the a and the ! to replace the l, so that RedMaple becomes RedM@p!e. I . It’s simple really, but a huge load off your already stressed mind when trying to login.
