Therapeutic passwords (and maybe educational, too!)

Can a password change your life for the better? , thinks so. He did it. Deeply depressed due to a recent divorce, he made a decision: “I’m gonna use a password to change my life.”

I’m a firm believer that you get what you put your energy into, so I can see how something like that might work. I would start by making a list of things I want to accomplish and come up with suitable passwords to match the tasks. But let’s take a different look here and come up with some passwords that serve to reinforce good security practices. How about these:

D0n’tReu$ePasswords!
N3v3rKlickLynks!
EncryptUrD@T@
L0kD@tScreEeEen!

Yes, this is slightly tongue-in-cheek, but not to make fun of the article above. It’s a valid approach. Just make sure you don’t re-use any of those on more than one site!
