Benefits Of This Password Generator
The common perception with passwords is that if they are easy to remember, they are easy to crack. If they are difficult to crack, they are difficult to remember. This does not need to be the case. The trick is to generate a password that has been randomized from something you can easily remember. Sure, you'll need to memorize the variation, but it's much easier than trying to memorize something that is truly random.

Why Self-Affirmation Phrases?
Many self-help books and lectures have mentioned the benefit of repeating self-affirmation phrases, and the idea is that if you repeat something often enough, it will be ingrained in your subconscious mind and you will truly believe it.
The difficulty with this suggestion is that many of us do not have the time to keep repeating our self-affirmation phrase, or we sometimes simply forget to do it. If we use a self-affirmation phrase as our password, though, we will naturally be repeating this phrase to ourselves without having to exert any extra effort.
Your Password Is Safe
9 Password Safety Tips
1. Do not share your password with anyone. The fewer people know your password, the more secure your password is.
2. Do not use dictionary words. Hackers sometimes use brute-force to crack passwords, and words in the dictionary are among the first choices they use in this method.
3. Use a mixture of lower case, upper case, numbers, and special characters in your password. This makes it difficult for hackers to guess your password.
4. Make sure your password is at least 8 characters long. The longer the password, the more difficult it is to crack.
5. Use different passwords for different accounts. With the amount of data breaches happening at big companies, it is quite likely that your password may fall into the wrong hands under situations you have no control over. If you use the same password everywhere, hackers can easily get into all your accounts once they get a hold of your password from one of your accounts.
6. Do not post your password where others can see easily. Some people write down their password on a Post-It note and sticks it on their monitor. This is a sure-fire way to give other people access to your account.
7. Do not click on email links. The only exception is if you are expecting that particular email. This rule applies to even people you know. If you receive a email from someone you know but you are not expecting it, do not click on any link in that email, as that person's email account may have been hacked and the message was actually a phishing attempt.
8. Do not type in your password when your connection or your device may not be secure. For example, when you are on public Wi-Fi or on an untrusted device such as an airport internet kiosk.
9. Do not use any information about yourself that may be publicly available. Examples are as your address, the name of your spouse, or even the name of your pet.
