Here’s an article on how to make a better passwords:

The problem is that strong passwords are VERY hard to remember and you should never reuse the same ones (that leads straight to identity theft). The solution is to use a password manager. All that is, is a sort of secure organizer that lets you store all those impossible to remember (but strong) passwords. Another article here from our blog that gives some more information:
