If you want better and more secure Internet passwords . . .
. . . but don't want the complications, security hassles or expense of a password manager program, there's a simple and very effective way to get them.
Go to the Norton IdentitySafe Password Generator, enter the details it asks for, and click the 'Generate Passwords' button. I'd suggest a minimum password length of 12 characters for greater security. When the list appears, copy and paste it into a word processor document, then save it on your hard drive or print it out. You can generate up to 50 passwords at a time; for more than that, run the Generator more than once. As you use each password, note the Web site or account that uses it, then cross it off the list of available passwords.
Short, sweet, simple, and pretty secure. What's not to like?
