I just use a selection of numbers and letters, sometimes I have words and numbers. But they say adding symbols (upper case), wouldn't protect your computer any more than how it is now for the simple fact if you have a trojan on board they will get your password with symbols or not. I also use a different email for my accounts than what I do for my everyday stuff. So all my family and friends don't see my RS emails - no one does.

Just make sure you have a bank pin and authenticator.

I actually need to get an authenticator for my email.
I am a A List :D WOOT WOOT for me :D

Yea, of course it won't help in those situations, the reason why people are still asking for such a change is because it still helps with brute force attempts/guessing.

Oh, I never thought of that happening.

But if you have a password that has nothing connected to you, such as family, pets, school, work, hobbies or sports you should be safe.
