I started this about a year or so ago, and it works great. My email has never been hacked. (Knock on wood.) This is how it works:
For every website you need a password for, choose two letters. It could be the first two, the last two, the second and third, etc. Always be consistent or you’ll start getting confused!
Second, and, again, this part will remain consistent for every password you have, choose a four-digit number, one that’s easy for you to remember. Also choose a five letter word.
Now, put them together in whatever combination you choose—just remain consistent.
For example, suppose the letters from the website will be the last two, my number is 1953, and my word is “jumps.” I want to change my password at Amazon. I decide this will be the combination:
For Facebook it would be:
For Goodreads it would be:
Let me give another example. I will use the last two letters of the website and the same number and word.
All you have to remember is your number, word, and the way you choose to combine them. And stay consistent!
Hope this helps!
