An easy human password policy your parents can understand

With all this breach talk, and my Email having “gotten pwned” in the Adobe leak, I have to admit that I used the same password for a lot of non-critical logons like forums, etc. (versus critical logons like banks or anything I give my credit card info to).

After smacking myself around a little bit, finally installing minikeepass on my iphone for the critical passwords, I still wanted an easy method to remember my non-critical passwords.

Let’s say I used the string “veryeasy” as my previous password that I shared amongst sites. I simply changed this password to the following:

[site abbreviation I thought of] veryeasy01!

I’ve also been known to use things like:

[site abbreviation I thought of] veryeasy01! this is a passphrase

Or even:

[site abbreviation I thought of]this is a passphrase`~`~

The site abbreviation I thought of is something I can easily remember, but might not be something related to the site. For instance, for Amazon my password might be `futurama veryeasy01!`.

And, remember, correct horse battery staple.
