Creating and protecting passwords
According to the OnGuardOnline.gov article, Computer Security, “creating strong passwords and keeping them safe” is perhaps the most practical way to protect them since, in the same article it is stated in very specific terms that, the passwords we create must be “protected.” Since OnGuardOnline.gov is a federal government website managed by the FTC “in partnership with [other] federal agencies” like the Department of Homeland security, this advice is not to be taken lightly; so I’m in full agreement with these recommendations.
Usage example: If your name is Peter Johnson and you have the BHPlus code memorized (A-1,E-2,I-3,O-4,U-5 + B-6,C-7,D-8,H-9) and encode your name with it to use as your password (P2t2rJ49ns4n), will you ever forget that password? See further down the page for more specific usage examples.
However, as the creator of ID Cover password creation method and author of the ID Cover Password Creation Handbook, I think it is necessary to do more than just suggest what should be done to create and protect strong passwords; we should provide Internet users with a method they could use to achieve strong password creation in accordance with the above recommendations; and the ID Cover Password Creation Handbook is just the guide that will serve that purpose.
- ID Cover can be used to create longer passwords that are tougher to crack!
- ID Cover will help users determine the manner in which letters, numbers, and special characters are mixed to create passwords they can actually remember!
- ID Cover will help users utilize a place secure enough to keep their passwords safe and out of sight!
What makes the ID Cover Password Creation method so effective?
Usage example: If your name is Alice Walden and you have memorized the BHPlus code (A-1,E-2,I-3,O-4,U-5 + B-6,C-7,D-8,H-9) and encoded your name with it to use as your password (1l372W1l82n), will you ever forget that password? Continue reading.
It helps us create passwords by encoding things we can easily remember!

The encoded versions of “Some actual people, places and things I can easily remember” which appears above will represent actual passwords when spaces are eliminated between them (example my own name would look like this: T4nyt9218m3n, and name of a past president will look like this: J49nK2nn38y) and used in actual real life situations as may be required.
