FINALLY: A Good Password Management Article

DreamHost recently posted an article on their site about password management: DreamHost: How to Create Strong Passwords to Keep Your Website Safe. Just the list of points is much better than what I’m used to seeing:

  1. Make your password long.
  2. Don’t use a common phrase.
  3. Test your password.
  4. Don’t reuse your password.
  5. Use a password manager.
  6. Don’t store passwords in your browser.
  7. Follow the rules every time.
  8. Use two-factor authentication.
  9. Consider the Passphrase/Diceware Method.
  10. Use security questions wisely.
  11. Keep an eye on your smartphone.

I still have to actually read the specifics for each, but that list alone is a great guide on modern password management.
