For years I have heard the idea that passwords have to be long, upper and lower case, numbers and special characters. All mixed together. I think such password makes it secure, hard to guess, etc. This is where having a password manager comes in handy.
But recently I saw a somewhat old video of Snowden, where he said that instead of thinking in pass words… Think in pass phrase… A long phrase is much easier to remember than trying to remember something like “X2u%s6j5wDPk*[email protected]” generated by a password generator. And this is where I want to clear my doubts and ask for your help.
**Is it actually secure?** Because if so, that’s great, because apart from being safe, it could be simpler to remember.
