That's a false sense of security and I wish people'd stop advocating it so enthusiastically. Sure, it can't hurt, but it's not like there's hackers actually trying every possible combination of account name and password, starting with 'a' and working toward 'zzzzzzzzzzzz'. Considering STO locks you out for a second or two after each incorrect input, that'd take ages. After one day, they'd be at 'bkwn'. (And that's still trying to log into account 'a')

It's either spyware on your computer, or a big pile of printouts reading "Property of Cryptic Studios" at the top.

How long or complicated your password is hardly ever matters.
