Create easy to remember, hard to guess passwords with Password Bird

Password Bird is a simple online service that will create a password based on a number of personal markers. Because the password is culled from a few names and dates that are important to you, the hope is that the password will be easy to remember but remain hard to crack.

How does it work? When you visit Password Bird, you are prompted to enter in three items:
  • A name that is important or special to you
  • A word that is special to you
  • A date that has personal significance
After that, you hit the create password button, and Password Bird goes to work. The next page will show you the customized password. If you don't like the password, Password Bird can quickly generate a new one based on the personal markers; or, you can choose to start over completely with a new set of words and dates.

Does Password Bird make secure, yet easy to remember, passwords? It doesn't take a scientist to see the patterns after testing this a few tomes, but it doesn't seem to be totally useless.

What do you think?
