Every day, it seems like I’m signing up for some kind of new, free web offering. Â It used to be that you could make your password whatever you wanted to… but here lately, more and more websites are making you jump through all kinds of hoops… telling you what CAN and CANNOT pass as a password on their sites.
- no username in your password
- no 12345 or password as your password
- passwords need to be longer than 3 letters
These kinds of things drive me crazy!
So what does the perfect password look like?

Again? Â Seriously?
I use a spiffy program for Mac called 1Password that keeps all my passwords straight Â for me. Â I love it.
And yes… I usually stick to about 3-4 standard passwords, all of which I can usually remember, but are hopefully something you would never think of.
