How should I pick a good password?

Choose unique passwords for each website you use, never re-use passwords across different websites. If not using a password manager, a good password is one that is easy for you to remember but hard for anyone else to guess. If using a password manager (recommended, see below), it should be able to generate very secure passwords for you (of at least 16 characters).
