    You forgot



    person's name - includes family

    persons telephone number

    When I worked for the DIA (while active) there was literally a list of prohibited passwords, and we would check each on an inspection.

    You would be surprised.....

    The tighter the security the more most users view it as a nuance - at best.

    Maybe I should try out if some of my friends use one of these. How high are the chances though? ;) I laughed at trustno1 ;) This is really cool.

    I prefer to make a combination of a word with numbers, and I try to change the password more often, therefore I feel quite safe ;) but you never know!

    I don't do it anymore, but years ago when I got pissy with having to create new accounts for something or other, I'd have my password be f***you2 :)

    I use a variety of passwords, according to the need.
    At work, some of our systems have us change the password every 90 days, while others I have used the same one for some 12 years.
    My department has a very robust firewall and security system for our network.
