It is surprisingly hard to make a password that is both secure and easy to remember.
The best way I know of is to string together a few randomly chosen words, and separate them with a digit or special character. In the box below are several passwords; you can pick one or choose others.
These passwords are generated fresh, in your browser, on each page visit; they are designed so that no one besides you knows the passwords you are looking at, not even this website.
You can always make a password shorter and simpler by dropping the last word or two.
It is also important to have different passwords for different sites. I use a password manager to keep track of passwords, and you want to have your passwords stored encrypted in a password manager.
One free password manager is KeePass.
Note: Some sites have restrictions, saying that your password cannot exceed a certain length, or that special characters are not allowed. If you try to use one of these passwords and run aground on a website’s rules for passwords, just cut the password down to size so that it fits the site’s rules.
