Whilst its difficult to remember complex passwords, techniques such as mnemonics can make this process easier. Using acronyms people can create passwords from easy to remember phrases or sentences.


Demonstrate how to turn a sentence into a password, using minuscule and capitals characters and substituting certain letters for numbers. Ask all participants to create their own password using mnemonics and a piece of paper/pen. Go around the room to see if they can recite their own passwords.

Trainer's notes

The of this exercise is to create confidence in participants ability to create and remember a entirely in their head, without writing it down on paper. Passwords they create and remember with mnemonics can be later used as the Master Password in Keepass or other instances.
