    Protip: Use phrases instead of words. It makes the passwords stronger by adding more characters. Not to mention makes them easier to remember.

    Great tip. I use words but hadn't thought of phrases. That might be more fun and challenging also.

  • Great idea, but maybe not "mybossisajerk" on your work computer.

    Your actually better off using something like !w!sh!weres!ngle20 The password we created there is very strong contaning a mixture of letters, special characters, and numbers and easy to remember!

    The big thing about passwords is with computing power going up in the fashion it has along with the speed of internet connections. Passwords like the one we just created will have to be used to get any kind of security.
