Why are you not already using a password manager? They have existed in fantastically-useful form for probably well over five years now.

If a password is easy to remember, it is easy to guess, and if you reuse a password it's likelihood of being compromised increases dramatically.

There is no simple solution for this problem. Password managers make the best of a crappy and likely unavoidable situation.

Because I cannot install applications on my work PC. Which means that I have to sit there carefully copying long strings from my phone to my PC if I want to log into a site at work.

Which is frankly more effort than I can be bothered with.
