Using the same password, always and everywhere

The average user uses at least ten passwords for different services and bills. But, with the constant reminding that passwords should be changed every few months it is getting harder and harder to memorize them. So because of that users begin to “recycle” passwords and soon they have the same password for several services.

It is true that remembering different password can be difficult, but once when you come up with your system, it will be much easier. Pick a phrase that will be your basis and for every page add something characteristic to that page. For example, if your base is AcM3 and you add 8F8 to that for Facebook, it will be easy to remember and almost impossible to hack.
