The basic premise of a password is that it is a SECRET. No one else should know your passwords. And yes, I said passwordS plural, with an “S” on the end. Every password you have for every site that you deem important should be different. And your throwaway password should be different from all of those. I can already hear the gnashing of teeth after that last sentence, “remembering all of those passwords is impossible! I’ll forget them all and be locked out of everything!”. SILENCE PEASANTS! The Emperor will show you the way.The secret to maintaining secure passwords and still being able to remember them all is a Password Schema.
To create a Password Schema you first choose a five word phrase, our example will be “The Best Five Word Phrase”. Now we head on over to the “Leet” Speak Translator and convert that phrase into letters, numbers, and symbols. What I get for example phrase is “7|-|3 b3$7 pH1/3 //0rD p|-|r4$3?. Some of those symbols aren’t valid password characters, so we will have to clean it up a bit. The final result is “7H3 b3$7 pH1V3 W0rD pHr@$3?. This is the basis for every password we are going to make. This phrase is what you can write down. Ideally you only write down the unconverted phrase, but if you aren’t familiar with “Leet” speak conversions you can safely write down the converted phrase.
