Creating a strong and secure password is essential for protecting your online accounts and personal information. Here are some tips to help you make up a good password:

1. **Length**: Make your password at least 12-16 characters long. Longer passwords are generally more secure.

2. **Complexity**: Use a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters (e.g., !, @, #, $, %). The more varied your password, the harder it is to guess.

3. **Avoid Personal Information**: Do not use easily discoverable information such as your name, birthdate, family members' names, or any other easily accessible details.

4. **Unpredictability**: Avoid common patterns like "123456," "password," or "qwerty." These are among the first passwords hackers will try.

5. **Randomness**: Use a mix of unrelated words or phrases to create a password that's not easily guessable. Consider using a password manager to generate and store complex passwords for you.

6. **Avoid Dictionary Words**: Using real words makes your password vulnerable to dictionary attacks. If you use a word, consider adding numbers and special characters between the letters.

7. **Unique Passwords for Each Account**: Avoid using the same password for multiple accounts. If one account gets compromised, it will prevent hackers from gaining access to all your other accounts.

8. **Passphrase**: Consider using a passphrase—a series of random words or a sentence that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess.

9. **Avoid Keyboard Patterns**: Avoid using sequences of characters that follow a pattern on the keyboard (e.g., "qwerty," "asdf," "zxcvbn").

10. **Regular Updates**: Change your passwords regularly, especially for critical accounts.

Here's an example of a strong password: "Tiger$87Storm#Purple"

Remember, the goal is to create a password that is hard to guess or crack, but also one that you can remember without needing to write it down. If you find it difficult to remember complex passwords for each account, consider using a reputable password manager that can securely store your passwords and help you generate strong, unique passwords for each service you use.
