i have read where there are people who have actually used the word password as their password
above is how i would change password to be a better password
eg 2u would replace the w or the double u or 2u
although not a perfect password its better

what i do is do at least 8 characters making sure to use some caps some numbers some symbols
i usually will write a sentence or look one up in some written material
then take the first letter of each word
use it or cap it or change it to a number or a symbol
when i get to >8 i figure thats enough

so what i have is a random password that makes no sense
its harder to remember of course
its much more secure than
something like my birthday and address etc
which is easier to hack than the random one

now the harder to remember one is what i am after
besides the better security

if you are in my situation or if you are worrying about getting memory loss
one of the things that will happen will you will start having trouble remembering your passwords

when i get  my interviews for the alzheimers research studies they will commonly ask you
do you have trouble remembering your passwords
i usually smile
nope never

so each morning i make my coffee then head over to my laptop
i have to log onto my computer
so i type in my random password that makes no sense
its on to one google email then another google email then another email then my blog facebook page then my personal facebook then my twitter account then my  blog page
later after my blog is all done
i log onto my financial accounts that will be 2 or 3 of them
then i might log onto my credit card account

all of these different accounts have different passwords
all randomly designed

so each morning after i have finished my computer time
i sit back
take a deep breath
a sigh of relief
i know that my memory is ok that day since i remembered all ten of my passwords
that are no where near looking similar

my memory is intact today
im good
