This section presents a few ideas for creating your own password pattern. Always remember that your password pattern needs to be easy to remember but impossible for anyone to guess. So please use this guide as inspiration only, and don't use any of the patterns that you see here.
Patterns and routes
Your pattern can be absolutely anything - as long as it is easy to remember and impossible to guess. Here we present a few ideas for creating a pattern in one, two and four card arrangements.
Single card patterns
We recommend that you don’t just use a pattern based on just a single card, as your pattern may be easy to guess. So use these examples as inspiration, and create something unique to you.
This is my favourite. The sequence of a route is easy to remember, and so is the pattern. Your route can be anything. It might reflect your walk to work. Or to the pub. It could be the route your take around the supermarket. Or on your jog through the park. It could be a random snaking around the game cards. It could be anything. Your call! Routes can sit on a single card, but are much better on multiple cards. Here are a few examples, starting with two 4 card routes…
Next, we have two examples of routes that go across 2 cards. The sequence numbers have been marked on so that you see where the route starts and ends.
Finally, we have an example of a single card route. Again, the sequence is marked on so that you can see the pattern isn't just going from left to right, rather it is cycling out from the centre.
