We have heard to many horror stories that Hackers have actually set up Password Websites to collect passwords. Pretty ingenious on their part, yes?
To make a password manually try the below steps
1) Think of a phrase with at least eight words. It should be easy for you to remember but hard for someone who knows you to guess. It could be a line from a favorite story, song lyric, or quotation you like. Example: "I Will Stop The World And Melt"
2) Remove all but the first letter of each word in your phrase: "IWSTWAM"
3) Replace several of the upper-case letters with lower case ones, at random: "iWstWAm"
4) Substitute a number for at least one of the letters. (changed the capital “W” to the numeral 3): "i3stWAm"
5) And now use some special characters ( $, &, +, !, @) to replace a letter or two -- preferably a letter that is repeated in the phrase. You can also add an extra character to the mix. (Here, we’ve replaced the “s” with “$”, and added an exclamation point at the end.) : "i3$tWAm!"
Check the strength of your password
