How to Get a Secure Password

I can honestly say that I've never had a problem dreaming up complicated passwords — and by complicated I mean I can never remember them! I've gone on about the importance of creating a unique password before, but for those of you who love the abc123 passwords of the world, there's a great site to help you create a tricky password once and for all. With Safepasswd, all you have to do is type the kind of password you want — from easy to remember, or letters, or numbers — and then how long you want it to be and Safepasswd will work its magic. Not a fan of the password it generated? Just click the blue button and it'll generate a new one for you.

I agree - the problem with that site is, I'd never remember any of those. It has good examples for creating a strong password, but that's all. I've a system similar to GeeksDreamG.

Probably the silliest hing ever n my lame and limited opnion. The passwords I generated were difficult to remember and just strings of ten letter. Very difficult.

I just use the one I've always used, but in many ways though.

The best way to come up with a password that's strong and easy to remember is to think up a sentence and use the first letter to each word, replacing letters with numbers when appropriate. Example: "One if by land, two if by sea" becomes 1ibl2ibs. In addition, you should never repeat passwords on different sites. An easy way to have a semi-unique password for each site is to add the first (or last) letter of the URL to your core password. So, login for GeekSugar - g1ibl2ibs Login for BoingBoing - b1ibl2ibs
