How To Generate A Strong Password

There are four unique characteristics of a strong password:

  • Password Length – You’ll want to always have a password that’s at least 12 characters.
  • Mixed Case – You’ll want to include both upper and lower case characters throughout.
  • Numbers – You’ll want to include numbers in your password.
  • Special Characters – You’ll want to include special characters in your password.

Password Best Practices

  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) – virtually every platform now offers a means for you to use a password in combination either biometric data, a PIN or security question or pattern, or a real-time code that’s generated by email, by text message, or with an authenticator app.
  • Password Vault – If you’re on an Apple device, you can store all of your passwords securely in iCloud. This is a fantastic way to manage passwords because you can pick a strong, unique password for every service you have but you don’t have to remember them. Just use Safari and your Apple device will pre-fill the passwords. An alternative on Google is to use Google Chrome as your browser. As long as you’re logged into Google on your browser, your passwords are available across any device you’re logged into Google with.
  • Password Apps – Mobile and desktop applications like 1Password, Dashlane, LastPass, or Roboform allow you to store every password securely in their platform. They have browser plugins and mobile apps to help you retrieve them or pre-fill password fields. Another nice feature of these platforms is that they typically have an emergency contact that can gain access to your passwords in the event of an emergency.
  • Suggested Passwords – Password vaults and applications offer suggested passwords that are difficult to guess either manually or programmatically. I would encourage you to always use and store a suggested password rather than writing your own.
  • Don’t Share – Do not share your password with anyone. As a business, you should be utilizing enterprise platforms that enable you to create users who have limited access with their own passwords.
  • Change Your Passwords – Periodically changing your passwords can help increase their strength and protect your accounts. Some security experts recommend changing your passwords every few months or so.
