From Ars Technica: The secret to online safety: Lies, random characters, and a password manager

From the article: “We’re going to focus on how to use a password manager, software that can help you go from passwords like ‘111111’ to ‘6WKBTSkQq8Zn4PtAjmz7′ without making you want to pull out all your hair. For good measure, we’ll talk about how creating fictitious answers to password reset questions e.g. mother’s maiden name can make you even more resistant to hacking.”
