Not the most secured password

I was surfing YouTube recently when I stumble upon this video. It’s a video clip from Star Trek that says the most secure security password ever.

To be honest, a password like 173467321476C32789777643T732V73117888732476789764376 is rather secure. It is 52 characters long and will take a long time for computer to brute force that. But is it the most secured password? Hardly. Try remembering the password. It’s difficult. Most people will just end up writing this on a piece of paper. And we all know how this will end.
The way that we have been using password is wrong. A good password needs to be long and easy for the owner to remember. There is no need for uppercase and lowercase. No need for special characters. Just a long phrase that is easy for the owner to remember and difficult to brute force. Check out this XKCD comic and you’ll understand what I mean.

Of cos you are not supposed to change your password to be the same as the comic. All you need to do is to think of 4 to 6 random words and is long and easy for you to remember. Now that will be the most secured password.
