One problem I am seeing more of is sites that don't allow copy and paste into the password field. Makes it a real problem with passwords like D?!43#yfkb&45ghv. Who the heck wants to type something like that every time they want to check a bank balance.

Good info......I started at the top of the list and have made it down several hundred and haven't seen my passwords yet. I still have a lot to go....

It doesn't need to be that funky and random. A common phrase and a meaningful date with a special character at the end is all the security most people need. And, you don't need to constantly be changing them, unless there has been a breech and you've been exposed.

I've got a different password for everything I use. None are saved on the computer, phone, or other computer app. Got 'em all on a hard copy (middle of a notebook). If I happen to get hacked, they can only gain access to one thing.
