Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

It's not a big problem to remember the passwords. I know that you want to ask about what if I forgot my password?, there is a simple solution to remember your passwords by writing it down on a piece of paper then keep it safe and if it happens that you forgot your password, all you have to do is check the password you have wrote in the piece of paper.

I watched a lecture on that topic some time ago. It said that the main thing about password is in its length and the randomness of the used words. They said something like: sunnyflyuingpotatoesholiday is aslmost as hard to crack as the ones with symbols and numbers. Don't know if it's true, but the lecture was persuasive)
Giving random special characters and numbers together with letters for me is much safer than a long letters password.i wan hacked once in my online game thats why now i am more particular in my passwords creation for the assurance of not becoming a victim again

Its your stupidity if you dont come to remember a passwod that you are the one who created,ofcourse for the beginning you need to write if down so you wond forgot that soon

There are many random password generators available on internet which is much stronger than any characters were are thinking and if you pick 64 character password means it is impossible for anyone to crack it but please save your password copy as hardcopy saving on your system or in any clouds will make the condition worse.

By using a trusted password manager. One strong password to hold many other strong passwords.

Repeating the same password is dumb, and using a weak password is also dumb. So that's (IMO) the best solution.

Yep, trusted password manager may help manages password, I think a strong password should be of 8-16 digits. Generally, the password should be like the picture below.

in addition to this, there is always the good old method of using pen and paper to create a hard copy of your passwords. although this method is susceptible to physical theft but it still is a good way of securing your passwords if you keep that paper in a safe place that nobody can access.

Strong password is not enough to feel safe even if it is created with divers signs. It is good to look for exchanges which have high security standards, for example CoinDeal. You are informed about every login attempts on your email also confirmations are needed if you want to withdraw cryptocurrency.

Alternatively, if you don't want use password manger, guide by xkcd could be useful :



It's not best/most secure way to create password, but IMO it's balanced between difficulty of bruteforce/to remember.
Just make sure those random words isn't easily associated with your activity, hobby or identity.

I often hear people about complexity vs. length when talking about password security.

There is a simple answer to this: length.


Lets look at it:

Complexity:
We got a charset of 26 (lower case letters) + 26 (upper case letters) + 10 (numbers) + 32 (special characters) = 94
Now with a 'normal' password length (8 chars) we got 6.095.689.385.410.816 possibilities.

Length:
If we look at lowercase letters only, we got a base of 26.
A password with a length of 12 has 95.428.956.661.682.176 different combination and already is about 15 times stronger than a complex password with 8 chars.


Increasing the exponent (charsetlength) is way more efficient than increasing the base.

A lowercase password with the length of 12 is hardly arguable better memorizable than a 8 char password using lower+uppercase, numbers and special chars.


So, if you want to create a strong password, rather pass on complexity, and increase the length by a few more characters.

I use strong passwords on different websites,  I do this without a password manager and I remember everything just fine.  I find a long string of words similar to an electrum seed to be the easiest option for me.  Just make sure you really use randomized words.
