I apologise if this is well known, but I’ve just discovered it. I’ve always been concerned about the pathetic weakness of my passwords that I use as I wander around the internet. My problem is that I’d like them to be obscure, while at the same time being memorable - something I’ve never managed to achieve.
Until now; I came across this solution in a magazine. Take a phrase or sentence that means someting to you: for example, ‘my mother is 57 years old’, and take the first letter of each word or number. In this case, ‘mmi57yo’, or ‘My favourite film is The Taking Of Pelham 123’: MffiTTOP123’. Brilliant.
This is the best that I have across to date. I am now the password master. (Well, it’s a lot better than what I did before.)
