Choose six consonants (wisely!). If you choose the letters that occur frequently, it's easier to make words with them and they will occure more often in the website names. Here is the letter frequency table for your reference.
Add the following vowels ( A E I O ) and make two or three words (reorder the words the way you want).
Here is your map
Use this letter to number mapping to answer the challenge
Mapping letters to numbers!
Select five frequent consonants, e.g.,
n s t r d m
Add the five vowels
a e i o
Now you have 10 letters
n s t r d m a e i o
Write them around a circle (This helps you choose words faster)
Make two or three words with your letters
Choose a random number between 0 and 9. This is going to be your wildcard, e.g., 4
Memorize the ending aB! (or one of your choice). This is important to make all of your passwords meet the requirements of different websites.
Given a website name, e.g., apple, generate your password as follows:
Start at the first letter of apple, ( a ).
Find the first occurrence of the letter in in-star-mode and output the corresponding number. If the letter is not found in your letter sequence, output the wildcard. This is the first digit of your password. ( a --> 5 ).
Repeat on the remaining letters of apple till you reach the end. ( apple --> 54440 )
Attach your ending: apple --> 54440aB! This is your password!
