Developing a strong Time Matters login password:

The first step in securing your private data is to produce a strong password. Although recalling such passwords can be challenging, the following guidelines will help to bridge the gap between complicated and effective. A strong password should be comprised of seemingly random key strokes in order to make the task of guessing more difficult. Whenever possible, apply the following when creating your security passwords:

Make them long:
Each character that you add to your password increases the protection that it provides many times over. Your passwords should be as long as the application will allow, which in the case of Time Matters, is 16 characters.

Combine letters, numbers, and symbols:
The greater variety of characters that you have in your password, the harder it is to guess. Other important specifics include considering all of the keyboard characters and not simply the standard letters.

Use words and phrases that are easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess: The easiest way to remember your passwords is to write them down. Contrary to popular belief, there is nothing wrong with writing passwords down, but they need to be adequately protected in order to remain secure and effective.

Think of a sentence that you can remember:
This will be the basis of your strong password. Use a memorable sentence, such as "My son David is three years old." Next, use the first letter from each word to create a strong password. In this case the tactic would yield "msdityo".

Add complexity:
It is valuable to use some letter swapping or misspellings as well. For instance, in the pass phrase above, consider misspelling David's name, or substituting the word "three" for the number 3. You can take "msdityo" and develop it to "m$d1Ey0"
