How I helped my mom remember all her passwords

It’s so easy.
  1. All other information like security questions or second layers of security are recorded on the right side.
  2. Never use her name for the user and never use ‘password’ for password. Hackers are getting increasingly aggressive and you need strong passwords.
  3. Always use a number, a symbol and lowercase and capital letters.
  4. Create a personal system. Use a password that relates to the account in a way only you would understand. If it’s your Apple ID, and you like to have an apple and peanut butter after work try, “PeanutButter5pm!”
  5. Change your password regularly.
  6. Don’t forget you can always click, “Forgot your password.” Since you should be changing your password every few months anyway this is not the worst option.
