The Best Way to Create and Store Strong Passwords

So, everyone knows it’s a bad idea to
use passwords which are commonly found in the dictionary – same for names
of family members. One way to create an easy-to-recall but hard-to-figure-out
password is to create your own formula for creating unique passwords. One
example is to combine family names, with birthdays, and memorable words
in unique ways. For example, try using your pets’ name with your child’s
name spelled backwards. Capitalize the first and last letter of each name,
and finally, separate the two words with a "!" or "~"
or meaningful number. Create your own formula – it’s fun and will make
your online computing safer. Once you commit the formula to memory you
can easily adapt it to new passwords as needed. For more great ideas on
