Hugh's Secure but Easy to Remember Password Generator



Here is a little routine for generating a secure password you can actually remember. You take an easy to remember phrase of at least eight words from a favorite book, song, movie or poem (the more obscure the better) for example:

Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow
And then you yank the first letter from each word so it becomes: Mhallifwwas
And then you change the case and add easy to remember punctuation to it: Mhall,Ifwwas?
And then you can change some of the letters into similar numbers or special characters: Mh4ll,1fww45?
Then for extra measure you should add a special character at the beginning and end: *Mh4ll,1fww45?*

Another option is an artist with a long album or song name such as:
Coldplay's "A Rush of Blood to the Head" #Cp:aR0B2tH#
Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" @Ej-Dltsgd0m@
REO Speedwagon's "You Can Tune a Piano, But You Can't Tuna Fish!REOS!UcTaP,BucTF!
Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name"^JBJ-UgLaBN^
This produces passwords that Microsoft's password checker likes, as well as the one at How Secure Is My Password. But they are easy for you to remember! Just don't sing the song aloud when typing in your password!! Enter a phrase here and try it out!
