    It would be nice to have the option for password protected posts to have a "hint" that could alow froinds and family (say) to work out what the password is. E.g. "The password is my Dad's name" something like that.

    Nobody's password should be simple enough to allow a hint :-p

    People should not be using their own password to protect a post; a post is published for others to read- password protected or otherwise. Therefore you need a password not for a single person, but for a group of people. That password (in some cases) must also be discoverable by people you want in the group, but don't want to have to reveal the password.

    A password hint is a valuable part of the discovery process for the people with which you are interested in sharing a protected post. It shouldn't be used in every case, but there are useful cases for it.

    I think it would be better for the friends and family to just know the password. Providing a hint on the front page might give curious eyes the chance to access the post. But, since the contributor community is so awesome, someone created a plugin that does this.
