PadlockThe Unbreakable Lock

How'd you like to have a lock so strong, nothing could break it? A lock so secure nobody could pick it? Boy, if you had one of those, anything you kept locked up would be untouchable. Your possessions would be safe.

But the electronic equivalent of the unbreakable, unpickable lock really does exist. I'm going to show you how to create a password that nobody can guess or unscramble, even with a supercomputer and an army of PhD cryptologists dedicated to the effort.

But the best password is of no use if you can't remember it. I have solutions for that little problem too.
