FAQ #71


FAQ #71 has the following paragraph:
* Use a password that cannot be easily guessed. A combination of letters (both lowercase and uppercase) and numbers is recommended. Avoid using the same password that you use on any of your other Internet accounts.

A good way of constructing a secure password that you will still be able to remember easily is to use a "password phrase". For example, the following phrase:
John, look! My LiveJournal "rocks".

Of course, you should not use this particular example given here, because it is publicly visible in this FAQ.
