Make Your Password So Hard to Guess That Even You Can’t Remember It
Rafael Lugana, CEO of something called Open-Xchange, helpfully explains “How to remember all your passwords and keep them safe.”
ne method is to base them on the first letter of each account. For example, your Facebook password would correspond to (F), which could mean “favorite film.” If your favorite film is Star Wars, you might then pick your favorite character: Han Solo. Then, your password could be Solo, plus some combination of numbers and symbols that isn’t related to any of your personal data but instead has a hidden personal meaning—for example, you first saw Star Wars on your 7th birthday, which was in 1983, at your Uncle John’s house. So the password for Facebook is now Solo7_1983@johns. Not a foolproof system, because the most dedicated hacker can crack any password, but it’s much better than using variations on the same password for all accounts.
So, all you have to do is make up unique password for each site based on randomly chosen details of an incredibly complex story associated with the first letter of the site? What could possibly go wrong?
