So what is the recipe for unbreakable password? ESET company, specializing in computer security systems, gives us some good advice. First of all, you should avoid the obvious solutions, such as already mentioned above. It is neccessary to take some effort and best construct something that will contain many different characters, for example "j3$t3m832pi3czny". The problem is that you should remember such a monstrous string of characters, because writing it on a piece of paper is also risky.

The bad news is that even if you created hard to guess password, you are still vulnerable to burglars attacks. Most free email services allows you to change your password after you type the phrase previously established as a response to one of the standard questions, such as \ “What is the name of your dog? \”. In many cases, a hacker can easily find such information, for example on your account in the social network. In establishing such protection you should therefore consider what information is publicly available on internet.
