Passwords are a part of everyday life, but they're often the only barrier between you and your personal account information, and indeed other data and information that you sure wouldn't want your Mum to find out. Hackers can use sophisticated software to easily get access to this stuff without a strong password, so ensure it's a bit more complicated than your date of birth or your girlfriend's name.

How do you choose a good password?

Most people use passwords that are based on personal information and are easy to remember. However, that also makes it easier for a hacker to guess or "crack" them.

  • Don't use passwords that are based on personal information which can be easily guessed or accessed
  • Don't use words that can be found in any dictionary of any language
  • Use both lowercase and capital letters
  • Use a combination of letters, numbers, and underscores
  • Use different passwords on different systems

Below is a guide to best practice in choosing passwords:

POOR Less than 6 characters of just letters or numbers

OKAY 6 Characters made up of letters & numbers with at least 1 letter or number

GOOD 7+ Characters made up of letters, numbers, & Symbols with at least 3 letters or numbers

EXCELLENT 8+ Characters made up of letters (Upper and Lower Case), numbers, & Symbols with at least 4 letters or numbers
