What should my password look like?

Article updated

When registering on OK, many users wonder: what should the OK password be like? First of all, it should be strong and difficult to guess for strangers. At the same time, it should not be hard for the user to remember it in order to access the account at any moment and from any device. We prepared some pieces of advice for password creation on OK with examples.

Use password generators.

These are online services that create absurd combinations of numbers and letters. When you click the "Generate password" button, the service generates several options. The plus of this method is that hackers will have a hard time guessing your password. On the other hand, it's not easy to remember it. Go for this option if you don't know how to make the OK password difficult enough. We recommend to write it down and keep it in a safe place or learn it by heart, so that you won't have to restore the page any time soon.

Use the associations method.

This means tying the password with meaning only you will understand. It could be the date of your first employment, name of your first dog, etc. However, you might use some tricks here as well. How to use the associations method to create a password on OK? Let's say your pet's name is Afina, and was born on 28.05.2012. If you choose Afina28052012, this will be a weak password. Combine letters and numbers in a different way: 28A05Fi20nA12. This code is difficult to understand and guess.

What OK password would be simple to remember and difficult to guess at the same time?

  • One written with a different keyboard layout. Think of a word in Russian, select the English layout and write down the result. You will receive a combination of random English letters. However, there are services and software that can "decipher" such codes. Also, it might be difficult to log in from another device: you will have to learn positions of the keys or the combination itself by heart. If you have chosen this method and want to make the OK password even more difficult, make up a word in Russian and write it using the English layout, for example: "авриндефыр" – "fdhbyltash".
  • Be sure to combine letters (lower and upper case) and numbers and add special characters. This way, you will get an even stronger OK password. At the moment, you may only use these special characters: ! # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - +
  • Do not use well-known information about yourself or common knowledge as a password: it could be easily identified. A combination of characters that removes the initial meaning from the password and is difficult to guess is an exception.
  • Obvious advice: do not share the password with anyone and do not store it on devices that don't belong to you.
