Leetspeak is a system of modified spellings used primarily on the Internet. It often uses character replacements in ways that play on the similarity of letters via reflection or other resemblance. It’s commonly used to create passwords that are considered memorable and secure. Unfortunately it didn’t take long for hackers to catch up. Now Leetspeak passwords are just as easily cracked as the "password123’s" of the world. At Onsite Techs we recommend the use of a PASSWORD MANAGER to create secrure passwords without the need to remember them all.
