How to create a strong password

In today's world, many users face a common problem when their account is hacked. To avoid this, you need to create a strong password that contains at least one number, symbol, or capital letter.

Unfortunately, this concept does not always help and hackers can still easily guess your password. The Daily Mail has published tips from cybersecurity expert Stan Kaminsky to help you protect your account.

Emojis

According to him, you need to add emojis to create a strong passcode that is unlikely to be cracked.That is because hackers need to check thousands of variants to find the right one. This will take a lot of time and exhaust the thief.

There are more than 3,600 standard emojis and using five of them is the same as coming up with a nine-character password. Seven emojis correspond to a strong 13-letter and 13-digit code.

Not only such a password is hard to crack, but it's also easier to remember as funny icons are much more interesting than a combination of letters and numbers.

However, the expert warned that the use of emojis can slow down the process of logging into an account because such a password is harder to enter than other characters. There are no questions about a smartphone, but a computer can slow down the process a bit. You will need to look for the desired icon in a long list.

If you work on different gadgets, be sure to check if there are the same emojis on your smartphone and laptop.

Be careful on social media because a hacker can monitor which emoji you use most often to find out your password.
