I read a tip for a password. They said use a letter with one of these (`) over it; or one of these (~) like the French do. They said no one would ever think to try it. Trouble is, I don't know how to put that above the letter.

I always use at least one capital letter, one number, one special character and one lower case letter within all of my passwords. Makes it hard to remember them sometimes.

I used this and it didn't work until I found out you must use the number pad to the right of your keyboard.

I use an unrelated word that I would only know from my distant past.  I couple that with a Symbol and a number.  I have to change mine @ work every 3 months..  I'm up to #46 since I started that system..  I use it at home as well.  I've never had a PW cracked for any important information.  Then I have another one I use for just about anything I really don't care if someone cracks it.  I think I have that one on about 75 different sites now..

My greatest password protection is me. I cant even remember my own passwords, let alone make one i can guess, let alone someone else. If i hit log out on gttalk accidentally i either sit and think until i figure it out, or hit the reset password button in shame lol.

I just don't understand why folks don't use a password manager?  You then only have to remember one password and for those really important passwords like your bank acct. you can have the manager generate a very difficult one and then when you go to use the acct. you just open the manager tell it to copy the password for the acct.  If you are worried about having the password in memory, windows only remembers one item so when you are done just copy something else and the password is gone.

I hear what you are saying Bill..  Buuuut..  If someone gets your ONE password it's game over..  I'll stick with my system and make sure I'm always in Secure mode when I access important sites.  I get leery of using a third party (except Paypal as they guarantee my info).  The less folks involved, the better I like it..  But that's just me!

I use caps, low case, numbers and some symbol.

 

 

kind of chasing a rabbit.....how do you all store your passwords for memory? I have written mine down on paper along with sign on sig names, but then I kind of gotta do a short hand so if anyone gets it, they can't figure it out and I usually forget my shorthand. I know there are apps for that, but I do not trust those.

For me, it's one password to rule them all!
It is fairly complex though, involving uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers
