Choose Long Passwords

There is strength in length.  Each additional character increases the difficulty exponentially.  Ever wonder why they allow maximum password lengths of 20 to 24 characters?

Start with a length of 10 to 12.  Build longer passwords based on a series of three character sets.

cbs          three lower case letters

247          three numerals

MTC          three upper case letters

@#$         three special characters

“cbs  247  MTC  @#$”  becomes a 12 character password.  Repeat the structure to add 12 more characters resulting in a gigantic 24-character password!
