Excellent points on the subject. My approach is to have a non-secure identity and a secure identity. I use the non-secure identity to register for fluffy stuff and sites I don't transact business on (e.g. flikr) and a secure identity that I only use for trusted sites that I do transact business on. Its not perfect, but it reduces the risk you cite.

Pick a phrase ... any phrase will do, but the more words in it, the better

Take the first letter of each word in the phrase


Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water = jajwuthtfapow

Leet / L337 it - j4jwu7h7f4p0w

Capitalise / Upper-case certain words in the phrase J4Jwu7h7f4p0w

This makes for a very strong password indeed that is easily remembered and not prone to brute-force dictionary attacks

Good suggestion! Thanks for sharing it.
