How to create a Strong Password

10:56 am
Hello friends, I am back with some cool websites . Today we are going to discuss how to make a strong and secure passowrd because at present we need a password for almost every online activity and strong password is very important, as every users wants to protect their personal files, information and other data and avoid hackers from getting into their accounts.
However, not everyone can come up with a nice strong password, which is why I had created a list of two online websites that will help users to create strong and unpredictable passwords.

















"Make Password" is a Web application that help users to generate strong password, for Social networks, 
email ID etc.The PIN or Codes generated by "Make Passwords" is generated on Random basis and are not stored anywhere.
You can select the “Password Strength” option, which displays the strength of the password generated, in a range of 0 – 100 (with above 75 are Strong).
Once the user can picked out all the options, just click “Make Password(s)” and the passwords will be displayed in "Plain text" "Web page" or in "CSV" file.See the picture for more details.

Website Linkhttp://maord.com/

Remember : Password is generated Randomly,so no need to worry about mismatching copies. Just keep the password in a secure place since its quite hard to remember d password but its will take years to break this passwords.

2. Password Bird



"PassWord Bird" is an Best and Recommended Webapp for Creating secure password related with your name, your Special thing, Special Date etc.

Just as you provide special words, names, dates etc it will instantly create an Secure Combination for you. One thing to note is that the website don't use any special symbols (! @ # $ % & * ), But it uses upper and lower case and Numbers in generating 'Secure Password'So now onwards if you want to change your password, or want to keep your data secure. Use these Webapps to create some of the most 'Secure Combinations' :)) Cheers!!

There are plenty of service like Free Password Generator. You can even use them but recommended is to use from given above.

How to Lock Computer Temporarily when Wrong Password is entered

11:21 pm
When you are not present someone ‘unauthenticated’ might try to log in to your computer. He will try to guess your password and will surely make several attempts. But by using this Trick if any “unauthenticated’ guy tries to Login in your computer by ‘guessing’ password then your computer will get automatically locked for 1 hour or time you have specified. Simply, When a wrong password is entered more than 2 times, your computer will not allow any one to login for 1 hour or less or more time ( as specified by you ) .

So as usual follow the below steps ( pics will help you to understand ) :

1. Open Start Menu
2. In Search Box, type “Local Security Policy” without quotes(”marks) and hit enter
3. Now Local Security Policy window will appear see the pic below :



4. Double click on Account Policies which is present on left
5. Select Account Lockout Policy
6. Click Twice on Account lockout threshold entry
7. A New Dialogue box will appear, now enter the number of times a password can be entered
For example, if you want that right password can be tried to enter only in twice than in this dialogue box you will write 2. Now do as shown in the pic below .



8. Windows will ask you settings for Account lockout duration and the length of time to Reset account lockout counter. By default 30 minutes are select; you can select another time, or go with the defaults by clicking Ok.
9. That’s It !!
10. Now whenever any one tries to enter password more than 2 times than your computer will not allow him or her to enter password again until the time period you have selected.
To Change setting, go through these steps Again.


That’s It !!
You can change 2 with number of chances password is allowed to enter with your choice.
You can also change 30 with time period of your choice, it is in minutes.

Remember : 
If both the times the password was inputted wrong,then even if u enter the right password it can't be accepted,even you have to wait until the time period is over . So think before you use it.

Enjoy !! Safe Computing !!

Worlds Best File Compressing Software - WinUHA

10:55 pm


We all are quite aware of WinZIP and WinRAR. Both of these are most popular File Compressing Softwares, we use these two softwares for compressing files and folders and to make some storage space.

But today we are going to talk about another Compressing Software Known as WinUHA ( a UHARC GUI – High Compression Multimedia Archiver ) ,which is considered the best compressing software .

This software is Tested well by Nexus Hackers and According to us its the best software which One Should use for compressing files and folders.
Here are the Test Result, when a 158 MB of Folder with Some Linux Softwares inside was Compressed by WinZip , WinRAR , and WinUHA.

WinZip: Total Size 158 MB
Size of .ZIP file After Compressing: 140 MB


WinRAR: Total Size 158 MB
Size of .RAR file After Compressing: 110 MB


Finally Here are the Test Results of WinUHA

WinUHA: Total Size 158 MB
Size of .UHA file After Compressing: 24 MB


Yes Friends, this is true WinUHA has compressed a 158 MB Folder into 24 MB and has proved that it is best software for compressing files and folders and this will amaze you that these are the results when compression was set to Normal.

Now it is obvious you have changed your mind and you will use WinUHA, you might have observed many Games Installation which extracts Data through UHARC , this is a Command Line version of WinUHA and has even more high compression ratio and is used in Many Games Installations.

Download WinHUA

You all can further use KGB compressor to compress but sometimes Error occur when the Compression level is set to High or above the Normal .

How to hide Files inside images (Steganography) using WinRar

5:41 pm
Hello friends, today we are going to learn how to hide files or texts inside a picture. This process is sometimes termed as " Steganography " . Through this process we can hide important documents and transport them safely . Anyone who will look at it, it will be a plain picture file .We are going to use WINRAR ( a free software) to do so. so lets begin :

WinRar Download Linkhttp://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar420.exe ( 32bit )
                                             http://www.rarlab.com/rar/winrar-x64-420.exe( 64 bit )


After downloading WinRar follow the below steps :

Step 1 : Select a Picture that you want to use or send. We are going to use the below picture.








Step 2 : Now open notepad and write the message you to write on it. Save it in .txt format .Make sure that  the text name should not have any space. For example : SECRET FILE.txt ( will not be accepted ) rather use SECRET.txt .

Step 3 : Now copy both the picture and the text file and paste it in any drive (but remember to keep both the files together )

Step 4 : In our case we are using F:\Testing directory to store our files. See below for more details :




Step 5: Now Right-click on the text file . Click on Add to " Secret.rar" ( in our case) . After clicking on it a new Rar file will be created there.

Step 6 : Now open command prompt ( press CTRL+R and then type cmd ). Now you are in command prompt. Now you have to move to the directory where your files are located . See the picture below to get an overview , Just follow the instructions given in the picture. Output.jpg is our image on which the text is hidden.





Step 7 : Now go back to the folder you will get there the image output.jpg ,which looks similar to your image but it contains our secret data.

Step 8 : Now the question arises how to know what is written behind our image output.jpg . 

a) Actually its quite simple open WinRar from the Start menu >> Program Files >>WinRar

b) Now go to File >> Open Archive and move to the folder where the output.jpg is saved. 

c) In the File type " select All files where it it written All archives " . Now you can see output.jpg. Open it and here you are.. now you can view the message.
