What is a strong password ?

Many people are confused about what a strong password means and what it is.


A strong password is one that is not easy for a human, or a computer to guess or work out.


Choosing a strong password is as simple as this:

  1. Choose a series of three or four words that are unrelated to each other, four characters or more long,

  2. Add some capitals,

  3. Add a number or two, and

  4. Add a special character (like $ or &@# )

Here are some samples (but don’t use these 😬):


Foot-Superfast-Lemon#55

$10FlyingDonkeyFootball

2xTennisLaserEyes!

SomethingClever2!Better



Don't use a password more than once - if someone does get it, at least they only get access to one thing not everything.


Have some fun with your passwords, make them hard to guess.

Best idea of all🥇 - Use a Password Manager to create and store your Strong Passwords.


These are easy once you get the hang of them - you remember only one password, they remember all the rest for you!


Good ones (and free) are:

Dashlane, LastPass, 1Password or similar
