Solid but easy to memorized password

Composing a solid password is easy. A combination of alphanumeric and symbols, creates one. However, this kind of password is not human friendly. It is usually hard to memorize. Moreover, since a good practice is to have different password for different purposes, it will became more trouble for human.

To create an easy to memorize password, you can use the acronyms of your favourite phrase of music, poetry, quote, or simple sentences. For example, 'Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.' by Albert Einstein could be abreviated as 'measap,bns.'. Or, you can use a combination of small and capital letters such as 'mEaSaP,bNS.'

Now, you have a strong, but, easy to memorize password. However, what about the rule that you should not use the same password for everything. Fortunately, there is a simple trick to use. For example, 'measapbns' is the base password. To use it in Facebook, you can for example precede the base password with 'FB'. So, your password for Facebook would be 'FBmeasapbns' or 'FB-measapbns'.

The technique presented in this article is just a guide, for you to create your own technique in creating a solid but, easy to memorize password. Maybe you can come out with a simpler but better technique, such as replacing some letters with numbers, such as i with 1, or o with 0.

Good luck.
