Seriously, stop using qwerty as a password--enlist these password strategies instead


Dear Ed,

The answer to your conundrum is in the article: get a password manager. We at Yorcard have implemented LastPass to store our passwords - each password is unique, long and complicated. The Password Manager itself is protected with a pass phrase (4 words, at least 16 characters in total, words on a list of commonly used English words are not allowed) that is easy to remember but difficult for a computer to guess. MFA is mandated where available. Simples (except, of course getting people to do it - it means regular chasing up and audits, but hey, what else would I do with my time?)
