Didn't vote, I use Keepass to generate and store my passwords. It usually depends on the site and the restrictions they use.

I use the same password for every site, but I switch it up by shifting my left hand 1 row to the right, or right hand 1 row to the left.

It's not 20+ characters long, but the online calculator things say it will take a billion years for a desktop to crack, that's good enough for me.

I have a 50 character string memorized that goes like ju846jdls92.... And passwords for certain sites use a different portion of that main string with different parts being typed with the shift key. So most of my sites are 20+ characters with random letters/numbers/capitals/symbols.

Well it's not!! You just never know who's coming for you these days. I myself have had success up to 15 characters in length (lower case / number mix) within a 32 hour period.

i was referring to the guy above me, memorizing a 25 character password, ok

but memorizing one that randomly starts in a different spot and sometimes I hit shift or let my cat walk across the keyboard. too far.
