Strong Passwords that are Easy to Remember


Passwords are the worst. They are difficult to remember, difficult to create and difficult to diffrentiate between sites.

Requirements

Most current password systems will require the following:
  • Between 8-12, sometimes 16, characters
  • A number 0-9
  • A capital letter A-Z
  • A lower case letter a-z
  • A punctuation mark !@# (recommended confining to these only)

Complex Passwords

The easiest way to create passwords is to use a system to build unique passwords that are easy to remember. The easiest way is to take two characters from the domain, a year, a punctuation mark, and a key word, and combind them together into a phrase that is almost the same for every site, yet slightly different.

Different Passwords

We also want each password for each website to be unique, so that if one site is hacked then your user name and password for the hacked site can’t be used to gain access to your accounts on different sites.

Strong Passwords

The way to do this is to build a password phrase, such as below:
