What is a secure password?

A password is usually secure as long as it is over 12 characters. Contrary to popular opinion, you do not need to have a mix of numbers and special characters to make a long password secure. Choosing the first three or four words of a favorite song is often enough to create a complex password. The key to password security is never write it down, change it often, and don't use the same password more than once.
