Create a Different, Secure, Easy-to-Remember Password for Every Site

Is there a bigger hassle than password management?

Based on ample evidence showing that a majority of users opt for simplistic, easy-to-guess passwords like "123456" and, sadly, "password," I'd say no.

Here's the problem: You need a robust, virtually impossible to crack password. You need a different one for each and every site and service you use (to limit the fallout if hackers steal a password database). And you need an easy way to remember those passwords.

There are a number of utilities and browser plug-ins that can both generate secure passwords for you and plug them in when you sign into a site--thus eliminating the need to remember them.

But what if you're using someone else's computer, or a smartphone or tablet? Then you won't have easy access to those passwords.

That's why I've started using a different method for password generation and management, and I've found it pretty effective.
