My problem is remembering them! Then I had a great 'vault' program that saved all of your passwords in one central location. But I forgot the password that was needed to get in there! LOL

Best Password Generation algorithm of all time (only because I thought of it!)... it's secure and the passwords are easy to remember

1. Get a book
2. Open it at random and pick a word from the page at random... write it down
3. Open the book at random again, write down the page number
4. Open the book at random again, pick another work from the page at random... write it down

Now, combine the first word, the page number, and the 2nd word. Mix the case of the letters as you see fit. Add a special character if you want.

Password generated

Cl@p68%TowarD (according to https://howsecureismypassword.net/ it would take a computer 3 million years to crack these)

I have a little black book on my desktop now with all of my passwords. Then use something like that, write it down so you don't forget, and then hope you don't have to type it in daily!!

When I has to make secure passwords of 14 letters, numerals, and characters, I would pick something out of
"The Encyclopedia of Arda" http://www.glyphweb.com/arda/.

With all of those entries in there, I would dare anyone to figure mine out!
