Creating your own password
However If you are not technically minded and want a more memorable way of creating a password, please see the OneHourSiteFix solution below:
Make a decision which letter you will make as a capital and keep that for all your passwords – so for example you could always make the letter 'e' uppercase or alternatively always make the fifth letter a capital.
Choose a unique character to include with every password (<>?,./”!@#$%^&*()=+)
Take a combination from the table below (in no particular order):
car brand /
Favourite sum /
The age you got married /
number of children or pets /
By using this formula the following passwords can be created (please do not use these examples!! – it is the act of making them which makes them memorable and unique to you)
