Passwords: Secure But Easy To Remember?

Recommended Posts

I searched for a thread on passwords not one so here one is.

The question I would like to ask, is there an easy remembering but secure hard to guess password technique?

I've used a few ideas I've come up with myself over the years but still can't remember them, unless it's simple words or numbers.

Sometimes I use pass numbers as passwords, this can be a selection of dates or random numbers like a new mobile number when you buy a new sim card, for example: 91885673.

Also random mixed like, example Hh3O=at-2W=, I have to note them types, usually hidden note pads without the website name and user-these are remembered or noted separately.

Maybe I could make up a sentence of a story? example "1wentupthestairs2Cmycat"

One could remember numbers from various occasions and put together in a password? maybe mixed with words, example, "my bedroom is 59 steps in my socks,:mbdR00m59sPs... I have 2 toothbrushes, my favourite number is 1...

 

There are computer programs that run through the dictionary and also number generators, to find passwords, "1wentupthestairs2Cmycat" would be harder to find then "went up the stairs" some off the best passwords cannot be remembered by ourselves, but I do believe there is a technique to get around this, and as so for the question!

Come up with a hard password and just write them down and tuck the paper away somewhere. It's a complete myth that it is unsafe to have passwords written down. You're more likely to have passwords nabbed via a hack, than a burglar breaking in to your house- searching for a piece of paper with passwords on it.
