Quite timely in view of the recent PlayStation debacle.

Well it appears that my banking passwords are in the 'safe for life' category, but I have a couple of other non-important ones that are in the 'low risk' zone. My problem is remembering them all and the phrase method seems so much easier as well as being more secure.

That is one of the most interesting things I've seen via this site. Thanks VOG.

I use a combination of, my old Car Numbers (most Blokes can remember these) and the name of the/a Girlfriend (some Blokes can remember these as well) associated with it. e.g. Alison-N42NDS that's the green Beamer

My 'strong' (ish!) passwords are unashamedly almost always items that are in front of me when I have to pick a new password. If I had to pick one now it would be something like...


My passport is in front of me, my monitor is made by LG and there's a Creative speaker on the desk. This works very well until I need to put the password in when at another computer.....

Well pass words can be a confusion , I use several for my applications except for banking- that one is easy.

I dont bank or any other vulnerable activity like it on the web.

Even shopping I use a separate low value card.

That way no villain can get me.

I have been 'Had' in the past fortunately the bank has been 'On the Ball' and dealt- then phoned me to tell what what occurred.

Quickbeam ~ Got through Cars and Girlfriends with monotonous regularity in the 60s and 70s. Haven't got as far as the 2000s yet.

p.s. the Hint for that would be "Redhead in Green Beamer"

p.p.s. I think that my Sister uses the Score Lines from the Finals of her most successful Tennis Tournaments. e.g. Framlingham.3-6.6-2.6-4 or something like that. Again something quite easily remembered if Tennis is your thing.

In the past I've used the substantial index at the back of The Lord of the Rings, there's a lot of unusual names in that.

Love to use the tree word method but alot of sites will not accept spaces.
