It might not matter for low impact stuff like forum memberships, but major emails, ebay, paypal and banking passwords have to be separate, random alphanumeric with characters and long enough.

Otherwise it becomes too easy.

Another way to defeat keylogging is not to enter the password in one go. IE if your password is 12345678, then enter 123, type something, enter 678, type more, click in the middle and enter 456.

It would make it a huge PITA to put back together if you have a keylogger.

This is an excellent idea.

Why do you trust other people to keep all of your password?

I don't have much options if I have several hundred different passwords.

I can't walk around with a paper - several of the passwords also needs to be regularly switched requiring me to constantly update that paper. And loss of wallet would give end in big fail.

Only thing practically working is solution where I can have an encrypted password database in multiple copies (home, work, wallet) and when needed synchronize the content.

This is an excellent idea.

Just remember that the "good" key loggers also grab the display around the mouse cursor. Intended to catch on-screeen keyboards and similar. But works just as well to capture where the cursor is when the different characters are entered.

And the "good" key loggers also keeps track of the clip board to make sure they pick up pasted characters.

Well, the keylogging sub-thread is interesting.

I'm thinking a serious firewall would be the best way to defeat a keylogger. Can we just find and shoot the offenders?
