As I’ve written about a number of times recently, passwords like pet names or birth months are too easily cracked by hackers. But more difficult passwords can be hard to remember. Information week has a great tip, which is using a complex phrase instead of a word or combination of letters and symbols. For example, a password like hrd@work925 contains an appropriate mix of letters, numbers and symbols that would make the password strong enough, but would also be easy to remember. Misspelling or using poor grammar makes the password even more secure.
