    Thanks for the share.

    However, I let LastPass generate them for me. :)

    Good site and it will generate a strong password..but how are you going to remember it ?:p Like Earth I'm also using Lastpass and it already has this auto-generate feature... :p
    Bogdan wrote awhile ago a very good guide on how to secure your password : http://malwaretips.com/Thread-Secure-passwords-guide

    I use Identity Safe from Norton and it works flawless although there are bugs present within Identity Safe.

    the less secure method.
    personally use a paraphrase like: imthemosthandsomeguyintheworld then use "hacker style" 1mth3m05th4nd50m3guy1nth3w0rld

    easy to remember and very secure, u can add

    Video from Sophos on how to make secure passwords. I've been using this method for a while now.

    Like Earth and Jack, i use lastpass, and generally will let it generate a password for me, but if i feel, it is not a strong enough password, i go to this site to generate one..

    That is a very nice share. I like the Password Haystacks the website also offers.

    personally, I never trust programs like this.
    because, I have a brain to remember it. and i'm still young.
    who's want to hack my brain? even no one person can do it.
    so, it safe.
