pretty cool read. thanks for the post and i'm guilty of using pretty weak passwords =[ should probably change a fewFirst!
This post was from a user who has deleted their account.
I have a couple "old reliable" passwords I use, based on some old Usenet newsgroups I used to frequent. Either abbreviations of the group names, or common catchphrases found on the groups.That, plus the Blizzard Authenticator helps with my main account. Being on a Mac doesn't hurt, as there aren't any keyloggers (yet).
Rule #1 of fight club passwords: Don't talk about fight club your passwords.
All of the things I consider important have their own (good random passwords, with lots of symbols and numbers) passwords, like my WoW account, my paypal account and such. Though I do have an authenticator, so I really don't NEED a good password there I suppose.
... Yea. I SHOULD change my password. It's actually one of the icons of my wasted childhood.-Goes to change-
For the accounts I actually think might get hacked, I have a password with 16 characters, randomly capatalized letters, some numbers and symbols. The only way I don't forget it is that I have it macroed to my keyboard :P
I would suggest having different grades of passwords ... use an easy one for all low security stuff, like forum passwords, and several different high strength ones for things that involve money or time.Your blizz account, as well as your banking stuff, should be pointed at an email account you consider secret ... one you never use online, or hand out. If they break your email, they can claim they forgot the password, and get it changed.And get an authenticator, dammit.
