How to create a strong Password (and remember it)

A strong password:

  • Is at least 12 characters long
  • Includes numbers, symbols, capital letters and lower case letters
  • Isn't a single dictionary word (but may be a combination of several dictionary words)
  • Doesn't rely on obvious substitutions (e.g. 0 for o, 1 for i etc.)
  • Here is an example of how to create a memorable password:

    Try to think about a sentence like:" The first house I ever lived in was 52 London Road. Rent was £700 per month". You can now turn that into as password, e.g. firsthouse52LR700pm. This is a strong password, you just need to remember two simple sentences.
