All of your online accounts and some of the offline accounts are protected using a password. This is why it is very important to use a very secure password. While there are so many password generation apps and utilities available for free, you may want to create your own secure password yourself manually for reasons for your own. One of the easiest way to create a strong password manually is through the use of the Youtube video URLs. The Youtube videos have a URL with a special ten character long code which is different for all the videos. You can start creating a strong password using this code.
For a really strong password it must satisfy these basic minimum conditions:
- It is at least 10 characters long. The longer a password is, the stronger it becomes.
- It contains mixed case letters, numerals, and special characters.
- It does not contain repeated letters, dictionary words or common passwords like “letmein”.
Keeping in mind these basic conditions for a strong password, you can use Youtube video URL as the starting point for your strong password. First of all you have to search for a random topic to find out some random video to be used.
In the video’s URL, you will find the video’s code after ?v=. The code is ten characters long. If you do not like a code, then you can use another one. And it is a good idea to use your web browser’s incognito mode to carry out these activities so that nobody can find out which video you have used.
Now write down the video code and then shuffle the characters inside this code around. For example, you can swap the first five characters with the last five characters. Then replace the repeated characters with others ones. An easy way to do this is using the next letter in the alphabet to replace the repeated letters. After this you have to add at least one special character and one numeral (if already not present) to make the password strong. You can now check the strength of the password using the Kaspersky Secure Password Check.
Conclusion: It is not much difficult to create a strong password manually if you follow some very basic guidelines. And you can use Youtube video URLs as the starting point for your password.
