Naturally, we will list the steps needed for a successful Pinterest password reset in this blog post. Additionally, we will discuss what to do so you would not forget and need to reset password ever again.
How to create a strong passcode for your account?
Before you the reset password, we would like to suggest a couple of tips. The password has to be not only memorable but also unique so no one could hack it or at least it would be difficult to do so. While some cybersecurity specialists have different opinions on what a strong password is, there are general rules that can help you create a secure combination. First of all, it is recommendable to use not just letters or numbers, but also symbols. Plus, the letters in your passcode should be both lower-case and upper-case. This way there will be much more possible combinations, which will make it more difficult for anyone to hack the account. To increase the number of possible combinations, users should also create the password as long as possible. Some sites may ask you to use at least six or even fewer characters, but keep in mind that these guidelines might be out of date, and adding a few extra numbers, letters, or symbols would be smarter.
Moreover, it is crucial the password is as unique and random as possible. Meaning, a combination like 123456 or passw0rd is not a good idea. To some, they may seem to be somewhat random, but the truth is, lots of people use these passcodes, and they are well-known to hackers. Another thing we would recommend when you reset the password is not to use any information identifying you, for example, your name, birth year, location, occupation, and so on. In fact, it would be best not to use any details that could be learned by taking a look at your social media profile, blog, and so on. Some hackers stalk their victims to gain as much information as possible about them. It is a known fact that many users pick words that have meaning to them in order not to forget their passcodes.

Probably, the easiest way to do this is to leave the task to a dedicated password manager that will always be there to remind you the needed passcode. If you worry about whether it is safe to store sensitive information on such applications, you should know that most of them can offer various protection layers. For example, Cyclonis Password Manager, stores passwords in an encrypted vault created on the device or chosen cloud storage and guarded by the user's master password. The master password has to be generated by the user himself, and so it is known only to him. In other words, not even the application's developers know it, and in case you forget it, they cannot remind it for you. This is why it is essential to make it both strong and memorable.
Besides your Pinterest password, you could also use Cyclonis to store your other passcodes or even sensitive information like your ID card, credit card details, and so on. As you see, the application not only keeps your passwords or other sensitive data safe but can also help you save some time by filling fields that require your identification or other information automatically.
