How strong is your password?

A new year is coming! Here is a New Year's resolution you may not have thought of! How about resolving to use stronger passwords? You should at a minimum have a VERY strong password for financial information. The best passwords are long, use numbers, symbols, punctuation, and both upper and lower case passwords. I know what you are thinking. You are saying, "But how can I remember it?" The easiest way to make a long, complicated password easy to remember is to take a sentence and build the password out of  the sentence. Is that about as clear as mud? Here is an example, "My dog's birthday is May 19!" becomes mdbdi519! It may take you a little longer initially to type in, but it could REALLY prevent some major headaches in the future.  Start the New Year off right!
