We all know the frustration of coming up with a new password. You need at least 1 capital letter, a number, a special character, an Egyptian hieroglyph, and a nondescript doodle. You can’t use your birthday, anniversary, or pet’s name. Plus, you have to remember it without writing it down or repeating it anywhere else.
