I am of the belief that the best password is one that you don't even know yourself. One that is so long and complex, that if someone had a gun to your head you couldn't recall it to save your own life. That is why I like to use Last Pass as my password vault. I only need to know one password to get in, but the rest can be 30 character randomly generated passwords that even I don't know.
Last Pass is great if a computer is handy, but what if one is not? What if you need a super secret password and you don't have access to a computer? I found a tool for you, that not only will allow you to make secure passwords no matter where you are, computer or not, but is also in itself a two factor authentication method as well. It's called a Password Chart.
Here is one I came up with using the pass phrase, "I love Bauer-Power."
- Picking and remembering strong passwords is a pain. It's easier to convert an easy to remember one.
- It works anywhere on any computer. It also works offline if you print out the chart.
- Its free, easy and secure. Everything is done in your browser -- no passwords are sent over the Internet.
