Password Bird

Can your best friend guess your password?  Does your password contain the name of your pet, a family member, friend, significant other, or yourself?  If so, it's time for a new password!

According to Microsoft.com a strong password:
  • Is at least eight characters long.
  • Does not contain your user name, real name, or company name.
  • Does not contain a complete word.
  • Is significantly different from previous passwords.
  • Contains characters from each of the following four categories:  Uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols
Having trouble coming up with one on your own?  PasswordBird can help you out.  Check it out:  http://passwordbird.com/

  1. I think that this website is the best thing for making strong passwords that seem that are way to complicated for someone to hack in to your things. This website is one that I will use for many more accounts

  2. I think this is a great website to use to create a password that no one will be able to guess. The ideas it gave me where complicated for people to guess, but makes sense to me. It is also really simple to use.
