It can be hard to think of a new password that is both secure and easy to remember.
A common mistake made by many people is to create passwords that include their favourite sports team, family pets, children, places or parts of their home address. Although this makes the password simple to remember this is typically not very secure because it can make the password much easier to guess or crack.
It is important that passwords used for online accounts have a good level of security. A simple way to improve a passwords security is to increase its length as each additional character will dramatically increase the number of possible password combinations, which in turn makes it much harder to crack or guess.
In addition to increasing the length, it is also important to ensure a password comprises a good level of complexity to make it harder to guess or crack. For example, a twelve letter password such as 'oil-room-end' is much stronger than 'password1234' as it features greater complexity and randomness.
When trying to create a secure memorable password it can be useful to adopt the approach of creating a passphrase rather than the more traditional password. For example, a sixteen letter password such as 'actor-learn-cold' is much more memorable than 'Tfbjq,Fh2R)nuGIx' but still offers a comparable level of security and strength.
All of the passwords generated using this page adopt a passphrase approach and the tool combines random words with character joins to create random passwords that provide a good level of security and are also easy to remember.
Possible uses for the passwords generated on this page are:
