Transcript

In this extension, you will use the secure password-creation techniques you learned in the main lesson to make a password based on the name of a movie you enjoy or a famous line from that movie.

Many accounts, files, and devices require you to change your password every few weeks or months.

Remember: don’t use exact names or titles.

Create your practice password with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers.

Once you have decided on your practice password, open Google Drive and find the Dictionary Attack spreadsheet you used in the main lesson.

In the word list spreadsheet, open the find and replace tool.

Type your new password in the search field.

And filter to make sure your results: are from the dictionary attack word list spreadsheet, and match your password exactly.

Then, click find.

If you used secure password-creation techniques, your password should not have been found.

If a dictionary attack would have worked on your practice password, think of a new password.

Be sure to use the techniques you learned in the main lesson.

Then, follow the same steps to test your revised practice password and make sure a dictionary attack would not be able to guess it.

Good work!
