Unbreakable Password: Theft-prone though Unbreakable

I take up this report today — “SBI suggests 8 ways in which you can create an unbreakable password” https://www.livemint.com/money/personal-finance/sbi-suggests-8-ways-in-which-you-can-create-an-unbreakable-password-11629343136710.html

Such unbreakable passwords as suggested in the link are not easy for humans to remember and recall, and would be written down on a memo and carried around in many cases.

At that moment, the unbreakable password has ceased to be ‘what we know/remember’ and has turned into no more than ‘what we possess’.

Furthermore, typing such meaningless passwords is stressful and painful.

Can we be comfortable?

Why not consider ‘Non-Text’ secret credentials?
