  1. a good tip for password selection is by having your password in two parts
    for instance have as normal password say eg: “1999joe”
    then use the website name for the first part like eg: “Anglesey”
    so your password would be unique to each account
    so the password for this account would be eg: “Anglesey1999joe”
