How many passwords do you use? How safe is your identity if one of your passwords has been compromised and the password is known abroad? Consider the following system for remembering multiple passwords.

Identify a ‘base’ password that would be built upon for each different requirement. For instance 1qaz (look at the keyboard). Then for each service required use a set rule i.e. the first two consonants followed by the first two vowels. So, for instance, the password for my linkedin account would be 1qazlnie; my google account would be 1qazggoo.

Simple but effective and easily remembered. It is suggested other ideas to make the ‘service’ portion of the password unique and more secure.
