Do You Use Password Haystacking?
How can we make passwords memorable AND uncrackable, it is password haystacking. You know the phrase it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack; well the same method applies by hiding your password with a prefix and suffix pattern. We know length is the most important element in supporting an uncrackable password, well at least in our life time. It is a process of using some phrase that has meaning to you and hiding it with a creative pattern.
Example password creation: I Played College BasketBall My Number Was 34. IPCBBMNw34
Example pattern creation: Used the number 3 and 4 on the keyboard to start the prefix and suffix pattern, that I would remember easily, #$#$//IPCBBMNw34\#$#$ this gives me a memorable and uncrackable password.
