Creating strong passwords

Creating strong passwords is easy. Remembering them without writing them down is the hard part. Here is a tip on creating strong passwords that you can then easily reconstruct or remember.

  1. Choose a phrase you'll remember such as "life wasn't meant to be easy".
  2. Choose a date you will remember in this example we will use 20/01/09
  3. Interlace the date you'll remember with the first letters in the phrase:" L2i0f0e1w0a9"
  4. You can add another level of security by adding punctuation, such as the inverted comma from wasn't
  5. Take it further and modify the password for each site or service you use by inserting the first two letters of the sites name immediately before the punctuation. so for online banking at ANZ, you'd use:L2i0f0e1w0a9an

Now that's a very scary looking password and its certainly not easy to remember, but it's very easily reconstructed. Just make sure you never reveal your phrase and date choice to anyone else.
