Generate strong yet memorable passwords
Authored by: Felix_the_Mac on Sep 23, '04 01:56:27PM

I find keychain Access extremely useful.

It means that I can use secure passwords on all web sites etc that I visit because I dont have to remember them.

The description above makes it sound rather complicated (not a criticism) , however once it is configured it isn't really.

TIP: you can get a Keychain access icon in the menu bar which makes it very quick to access the app. To do this start Keychain Access and then goto view >> Show status in menu bar.

REMEMBER to backup your keychain files, otherwise you may loose all your difficult to remember passwords. (The way I do this is by backing up my entire home folder.)

Also I use apg (automatic password generator) to create pronounceable passwords ten at a time, I then choose one I like. I got this program via fink but I am sure there are other sources.
