2. Include numbers. This is very important, as with a password containing numbers, it is a LOT harder for a hacker to guess it. To make it easier to remember, you can use your birth date or age, but put the numbers in random places! Example: fiSh8yfIsH3
3. Include spaces and symbols. This can make the password harder to remember, but also helps to decrease chances of it being found out. Example f_iSh8yfis@H3 (Note that at this stage it is virtually impossible to GUESS the password. Hacking tools will be needed.)
4. Another good way to create a memorable, but quite strong password, is to mix two random words such as dog and plane -> doplagne
By adding all the things above, this can be a great password.
5. Never, ever use a same password for several things. If one database is hacked, then your other(s) will be gone as well. A great way to keep all those passwords is to get a Password Manager program and assign one password to access all of the others.
