Create secure password and then use a online service to 'test' (And capture) it :unsure:

Just use a short sentence but substitute spaces with another special character:

I#eat#peas#with#honey

I've!done!it!all!my!life

It%makes%them%taste%quite%funny

but@it@keeps@them@on@the@knife

Before you assume it's secure, always check lists like this:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/d...ials/10-million-password-list-top-1000000.txt

No need to brute force when you can use password lists.

Which is why I don't advise using systems with words that must be remembered. Screw that. It's 2018 - use a password manager like Bitwarden.

This is a password I just generated using Bitwarden's Chrome extension:
Kmjug%7Z73QH%scn%$C*ni5m%rH%yg

30 characters long - 312 undecillion years to crack according to How Secure is my Password. This plus a YubiKey 4 is all the security the average consumer should bother with. Very unlikely you're going to be the point of entry if your account somewhere is hacked.
