Not too long ago I found myself staring at my computer screen trying to come up with a password for a new account. My brain was clearly taking a break.
I needed to come up with letters, numbers, and symbols that kept my account secure, and even though I use a password saving app, I wanted to be able to remember them. I had also heard that long unexpected phrases work well.
My brain decided to come back online with a new idea.
What if I used affirming passwords for my accounts?
Could my password choices be uplifting? The ideas started pouring in:
Now, whenever I sign in to accounts my passwords make me smile and affirm what is important to me. Can you say the same about yours?
Your Turn: How can you give your passwords more life and meaning? Do you have any fun ideas you would like to share?
Disclaimer: This post is not meant to present the latest in online security and I am not an expert in that field. And, of course, these are not my real passwords. I just made them up a minute ago.
