Too many passwords? Make them strong, easy to remeber!




Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Blogger. We have so many different identities on the internet. This also means so many usernames and PASSWORDS. Keeping track of all of these is tiresome so we usually just have nice "one for all" password. It may seem convenient for now, but once it gets guessed right you could be filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This video helped me with making easy to remember and not be weaksauce like Tom.

  9. Good advice. Check out my blog for a post on KeePass to store your password in an encrypted database with an autotype function for internet browsing.

  18. Interesting... but this scheme gets stymied by websites which say dumb stuff like "your password is too long" or "your password contains an illegal character".

  25. For prople who actually know me, my passwords are easy to guess. lol. but if i make it too complicated, i forget it

  26. I cottoned on to this idea a year or two back, so now my passwords are in context to the sites I'm accessing and it's a hell of a lot easier on the brain. For example, I'd have a word like 'binoculars', so my password on different sites would be 'bloggerbinoculars', 'gmailbinoculars', etcetera.
