Securely sharing a password with a correspondent
There are two essential steps related to passwords when exchanging secret information or confidential data:
- creating the password,
- sending the password.
Choosing an effective password
Obviously, you must select a password carefully if it is to be effective. Never use the name of your dog, your mother-in-law, or your youngest child, which are relatively easy to guess when all is said and done. 20% of people use one of the 5,000 most popular passwords. The most frequently used include 123456, iloveyou, password, etc.
The number one rule is definitely to avoid using a real word. Attackers can use a dictionary to crack the password with brute force by running through the words one by one.
The second rule is to combine CAPITAL LETTERS, lower case letters, numbers  and special characters [ (é-+")à§/£€>*µ etc.]. The longer and more complicated your password is, the harder it will be for an attacker to find it. Still, keep in mind that you need to remember the password, so don’t use too many characters and choose something mnemonic.
Sending a password
Naturally, you shouldn’t send the password to a Wabiz conversation circle via unencrypted SMS. If you do, your brand-new secret will already be compromised. Instead, use a different mode of communication. Share your secrets by speaking directly to your correspondent, either in person or over the phone.
Why not take advantage of your face-to-face meeting to jointly brainstorm and choose a secret password for your conversation circle? Agreeing on one in advance is the best way to send a password. One the two (or more) of you have decided on a secret password, you can have protected conversations.
No one can access the content of the messages you encode using this secret key.
