It's better to change computer / internet / banking / etc passwords at regular intervals like perhaps monthly. One I used to include at work was Alt-255 (press the Alt key and type 255) at the end of a password; confuses the bejeebers out of everyone because it is a blank but nobody knows how many blanks there are on the end! (Some companies insist on the use of unusual keys but others won't allow them.)AKAP wrote:Probably best not to publish this on an open internet.dsmg wrote:It's probably a number that stays with you all your life.

For the less computer literate every character has an associated number which you could type in in this way but of course a qwerty keyboard is quicker and easier. I think you cannot use the space bar in a password but this can work!
