Passwords made easy: use a pass phrase

Strong, hard to crack passwords are actually easy.

Use a pass phrase.
3 or 4 words.
They can be in lower case.
Remember the spaces between the words.

For example: “black eggs sometimes yellow”.

Forget password complexity rules (watch at around the 7 minute mark).

Easy to remember words, separated by spaces, all lower case.
25+ characters in the phrase is damn hard to crack, even if they are dictionary words. The bad guys still need to get the words in the right order.
