10. (your first name)
if you ask me, there is a simple way to get a easy to remember and hard to crack password.
just use a word you like and do the following steps,
1) Replace the vowels in the word with the characters that are linked to the word.
2)Get your day of birth(1-31), press and hold on to alt and type in your day of birth. Now release the Alt button. You should now see a special character that no dictionary attack will ever guess. Do this for your month of birth and year(the last 2 characters only) too
Old password= Todaysten
after step1: T()d@yst3n
There it is, a simple secure password that you will remember. Don;t worry, I never ever use that as my password ever.
