I have a funny anedcdote about that: Customer: "I cannot enter my internet connection" Call Center Employee: "Did you write the right password?" Customer: "Sure! I saw my husband writing it, it was seven asterisks" Call Center Employee: "........." To be serious: why "monkey" is so usual? I think best passwords should contain numbers and letters in a chaotic order

I use a combination of numbers and letter and small caps and all caps. The passwords I'm using are "strong" according to the meter of the sites I am registering. It's good that there are meters to tell us if our password is good or not. Just make sure you won't forget your passwords. It's also advisable to change passwords frequently. And don't ever tell anyone your password--this is a good effort to secure your password.

Im not using that "7 worst password of 2011" its a common password that anyone will probably know.A password should be 8 unique characters or more (combination of alphabet letters and numbers)or just use the "8 4 Rule". 8 = Eight character minumum length 4 = 1 upper case +1 lower case+1 number+ 1 special character. Hope that helps.
