Do you hate trying to remember passwords? Every website and device has different rules about how many characters/upper case/lower case/numbers/special characters you need to have, and just when you’ve decided on a good one? Time to change it. And it can’t be the same as any of your last five passwords!
If I had a nickel for every time I clicked the button that says “forgot password?” I’d be a rich man.
Here’s a fun idea that can help you remember passwords – use the first letter of each word in the first line of your favourite song.
The suggestion comes from a security consultant on TVO’s The Agenda
What would the first line from your favourite song be? Maybe some Queen?
On The Breakfast Club Ange said hers would be Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here
I’ll go with one from The Smashing Pumpkins – this song already has a number in it, so I just need some $pecial character$
