Tip from a greybeard - swap hands.

Many years ago I decided that passwords and PINs should be typed with the non dominant hand. Mainly because the entire world is set up for rightys (and I am nominally a righty) and the contortions involved mean that you'll never manage it the same way twice - and obscure the view of anyone behind you.

Another tip is to never enter the correct password the first time ....
