easy to remember password

I was listening to all things considered the other day and “All Things Tech” and they talked about new guidelines for creating password easy to remember password making it easier on the brain.

Instead of creating an complex random password with 20 characters, digits, and special characters that are impossible to remember, the National Institute of Standards and Technology has created revised guideline that can lighten that burden.

Longer passwords are harder to break than shorter ones. Paul Grassi, senior standards and technology advisor at NIST recommends. Keeping passwords simple, long and memorable. Phrases, lowercase letters and typical English words work well. Grassi says. “So if you can picture it in your head, and no one else could, that’s a good password.”
