characters.Most of the password crackers can crack passwords from 1-15
characters.So your password shoud contain 16 characters.

Your password should be a combination of letters(a-z) and numbers(0-9).

common word or a word which is present in dictionary.All password
crackers uses the dictionary attacks to break your password.
For example:
apple,clock,cricket,racing... all these words are present in dictionary.
Always use such type of passwords:

Actually it is a sentence john-is-my-best-friend-123.You see it consist
of more than 15 characters and it is also a combination of letters and
numbers and it is not present in dictionary.
