How to create a SUPER strong password that's REALLY easy to remember.

The most secure passwords are at least 8 characters in length, contain Upper and Lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

Here's how to create a strong and unique password for every site - and easily remember it! I've been using this system for years and have never forgotten a single password.

1. Pick a keyword (at least 4 characters long) that's easy for you to remember. It can be anything but HAS to be something you'll never forget. For this example, I'll use "popsicle".

2. For the word you chose above, capitalize the first letter -- "Popsicle".

3. Add the first two letters of the website name to the front of your keyword. For Facebook, it would be 'fa'. Your password so far would be "faPopsicle".

4. Now add a number and a symbol to the end. It can be "1!" or "2@" etc. Although it can be ANY combination, using the number and symbol from the same keyboard key makes it easier to remember.

Your final password for Facebook would then be "faPopsicle1!" That's a 12 character password that contains Upper and Lowercase letters, a number, and a symbol. If the website was Pinterest, it would be "piPopsicle1!", etc.

Should go without saying but I'll say it anyway. Don't EVER tell anyone your keyword from step #1.

FYI - When you stay logged into Facebook and/or use Facebook credentials to log into other sites/service, your information is being shared with advertisers and other third parties -- you know, for "advertising and marketing" purposes.

Now think about this.

From Congresswoman Susan Davis, Calif 53rd congressional district, in her Oct12 newsletter.

IV. EMPOWERING ONLINE CONSUMERS - H.R. 6508
Did you know that if you live in a certain town or view certain websites, or if you use a Mac instead of a PC, you could be paying more when you shop online? Most consumers are unaware that Internet companies are now adopting a practice known as “dynamic pricing.” Without their knowledge, companies are using consumers’ personal information - including browser history or IP address – to alter product pricing.

To help give consumers more information when making purchases online, I introduced legislation to require that Internet companies disclose whether they are adjusting a product or service’s price based on the consumer’s personal information.

I believe this bill will give the consumer the necessary information to compare prices effectively so they can make an informed choice as to which retailers they want to frequent. The Ensuring Shoppers Transparency in Online Pricing (E-STOP) Act would require an Internet company to clearly and prominently disclose the use of a price-altering program to a consumer prior to the final purchase of a good or service. The Consumers Union and Consumer Watchdog have endorsed my bill.
