Re: Good password selection

No, this is likely to be caught by extensive dictionary tries.

Use shocking nonsense instead:

passphrase-faq.html

but:

passphrases-only-marginally-more-secure-than-passwords-because-of-poor-choices

And also:

how-linkedins-password-sloppiness-hurts-us-all

where a commenter says:

Now the fine prints:

Use a different randomly generated password for each service.

Use a password manager for most of your password.

For the handful of important services (banking, main e-mail...) use:

-> unique passwords

-> use systems with limited number of trials (timers and so on)

-> use multifactor authentification
