Building a Better Password

As people age, it can become even harder to remember the countless passwords used in daily life. Dr. Dawn Mechanic-Hamilton, of the Penn Memory Center, offered some advice to residents at Beaumont at Bryn Mawr in February 2016.

She recommended beginning with a familiar sentence, such as one recalling a memorable address (“My first home was 6 Market Street”). By using the first letter of each word, capitalizing the first word and proper nouns, and including punctuation, you can create “Mfhw6MS!” a secure password by most standards.
