Is Your Password Hanging?
To create a password I chose “Penis”, but my computer told me my password’s too short…
I’ve found a method to help you create a master password that will be sort of like Sarah Palin, i.e., unintelligible to human minds. O.K., perhaps that should be unpronounceable?
The process to come up with a password which will not be found in any dictionary can be just this simple: think of a song that you know every word of by heart, perhaps one that has some connection to something memorable from your past, and then pick a short phrase from it, i.e. from the Christmas perennial “Jingle Bells” you could choose “In a one horse open sleigh”, words that perhaps could be especially memorable if you were at one point able to get lucky in such a conveyance.
O.K., select the first letter of each word: I A O H O S.
A brief note to spammers, before you waste your time, this is not a password I use or have used, not even close. My song is connected to something far more important in my past (not you, Jennifer), not some public song residue.
Now, depending on the allowable requirement parameters of the site you’ll need this word for, just sprinkle in a few numerals or symbols somewhere between two of the letters. For me as a mnemonic demonstration and to simplify it I’ll use the NUMBER 1 after the WORD “One”, so now I have: I A O 1 H O S
Once you’ve created one of these master passwords for yourself, to personalize it for each place you want to use it you might want to embellish it a bit my adding some sort of a connective to make it a very inside joke, for example try adding WFB to it if you’re unaware (It was recommended to me that I don’t use the word “stupid” so I won’t) enough to be a Wells Fargo Bank customer, or perhaps you could just use B.O.H.I.C.A. instead.

Feel free to ignore any ads that are shown below this advisory, I don’t get to choose them and even more sadly, I don’t make a penny off any of them, so in the holy name of capitalism I rebuke and don’t endorse or support any of them, unless of course they’re made of funny stuff…..
