It's not hard to create strong passwords. With a small amount of effort on your part and some tricks provided in this article, you can help improve the security of your computer.

Chris109 could be a relatively strong password as long as your name isn't Chris, and you weren't born on 10/9 (or 109 doesn't come from somewhere people could have easy access to). :)

I have a few I use where I take the first letter of each word in a phrase I can remember, or use a relatively uncommon object from around the room like TelTronicsSEB!!
