Keep your information safe with GOOD passwords

I forget too many things and would like to keep my life as simple as possible. However, a simple password can be dangerous and a good one can be hard to remember!
Did you know that the worst password you could use is 123456 or abc123. You'd be surprised how often people choose passwords like this.

If you want a password that you can remember but would be hard to break try something like a phrase or song lyric and do something like this.
Harold and I were married in 1979 = haiwmi79 (using just the first letters and a number)
