I have been asked in the past how to make a password that is difficult for someone figure out , but not so difficult that you can't remember it. It is actually, quite simple. Start with a sentence or song verse you can remember: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose becomes rudolphtherednosedreindeerhadaveryshinynose Then you start making changes over time (years) to make it more complicated for someone to figure it out. These changes do not change the verse, just what the letters look like: R's will become + signs while o will become @ +ud@lphthe+edn@sed+eindee+hadave+shinyn@se Then you can continue to make changes (over time) and even add another verse to make it more difficult, here U's become [ and e become 3, s becomes 7 and e becomes % I add another line (and if you ever saw it you would even say it glows): +[d@lphth%+3dn@7%d+d%%+hadav%+7hinyn@7%andify@u%v%+7awhimyo[w@[ld%v%n7ayitgl@w7 That is about a 72 character password that has 256 different possible characters for each letter. Good Luck to even the best computers to figure that one out. The trick is to only make one small chage and start small. My current password for things I don't want anyone to see is 37 characters/letters/symbols/numbers long. I make about 1 change a month. Perhaps a new word. Change one letter, etc. You have 256 potential characters on your keyboard. By doing this, you are creating an encrypted password for your password. Also, Never write the pasword down. You have to memorize it.
