Just by changing a "o" to "0" , i to 1, B to 8, are a few variations that can be used in a password. You may also add numbers in the beginning, end or middle of passwords.
  • Use All of the Above: If you use all 3 tricks listed above in the same password then that password will be completely unpredictable. For Example "p@s$W0Rd" is much more safer than "password" or any other variations listed above.
