EzPassPhrase - Security that's easy to remember
Protect your website logins and email accounts with pass phrases that are easier to remember than cryptic passwords.
In general it is easier to remember a pass phrase than to remember a cryptic password of equivalent strength. For example the cryptic password '7dKgN4yD7z' is harder to remember than the pass phrase 'then swish job fixed Won't Betray'. Your mind will quickly group the pass phrase into two word sets (e.g. then swish, job fixed, Won't Betray) thereby making it much easier to remember. Conversely it is difficult for most people to remember long cryptic passwords since it is not easy for the mind to group the password into little chunks to remember.
Trying to pick a password or pass phrase on your own is generally insecure because people tend to follow predictable patterns when choosing passwords. These patterns are easy to replicate in a computer thereby making it much easier to determine a persons password or pass phrase. However a computer generated password or pass phrase does not suffer from these same biases and therefore produces much more random and therefore secure passwords and pass phrases.
