Theme-related passwords

This tip was submitted to the searchSecurity Tip Exchange by user Mark Waugh. Let other users know how useful it is by rating the tip below.

Another method for creating user-friendly and secure passwords is to select a theme, and then send an e-mail to users at the time interval. One of my teachers (Professor Curts) suggested changing themes each month. Examples of possible themes are flavor, pet type, color, etc. Users can choose a personal password relating to the month's theme so that it is easily remembered.
