Tips for Creating Strong Passwords

Google can provide good information for creating strong passwords. Below are some tips provided in the article to keep in mind:

Make your password unique

Use a different password for each of your important accounts, like your email and online banking.

Reusing passwords for important accounts is risky. If someone gets your password for one account, they could access your email, address, and even your money.

Make your password longer & more memorable

Long passwords are stronger. These tips can help you create longer passwords that are easier to remember. Try using:

- A lyric from a song or poem
- A meaningful quote from a movie or speech
- A passage from a book
- A series of words that are meaningful to you
- An abbreviation: Make a password from the first letter of each word in a sentence

Avoid choosing passwords that could be guessed by:

- People who know you
- People looking at easily accessible info (like your social media profile)

Use letters, numbers & symbols

Passwords with different types of symbols might be more difficult for people to guess, but also might be harder for you to remember. You can set up recovery info at to avoid getting locked out if you forget your password.

Combine different types of characters

Use a mix of alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) and symbols:

- Uppercase (capital) letters. Examples: A, E, R
- Lowercase (small) letters. Examples: a, e, r
- Examples: 2, 6, 7
- Symbols and special characters. Examples: ! @ & *

Recommendations & examples

Replace letters with numbers & symbols: Choose a word or phrase and use numbers and symbols instead of some letters. Examples:

- "Spooky Halloween" becomes "sPo0kyH@ll0w3En"
- "Later gator" becomes "L8rg@+0R"

Abbreviate a sentence: Come up with a sentence and use the first letter of each word. Example:

- "Uncle Peter always ate chocolate-covered everything" becomes "uP@8cCe!"

Don’t use personal info

Avoid creating passwords from info that others might know or could easily find out. Examples:

- Your nickname or initials
- The name of your child or pet
- Important birthdays or years
- The name of your street
- Numbers from your address

Don’t use common words & patterns

Avoid simple words, phrases, and patterns that are easy to guess. Examples:

- Obvious words and phrases like "password" or "letmein"
- Sequences like "abcd" or "1234"
- Keyboard patterns like "qwerty" or "qazwsx"

Any examples in this article, like "sPo0kyH@ll0w3En" or "uP@8cCe!".
