How to make a good strong password

A strong password has:

  • at least 15 characters
  • uppercase letters
  • lowercase letters
  • numbers
  • symbols, such as ` ! ” ? $ ? % ^ & * ( ) _ – + = { [ } ] : ; @ ‘ ~ # | \ < , > . ? /

A strong password is:

  • not your username
  • not your name, your friend’s name, your family member’s name, or a common name
  • not your date of birth
  • not a dictionary word
  • not like your previous passwords
  • not a keyboard pattern, such as qwerty, asdfghjkl, or 12345678

Remember your strong passwords 📓

Option № 1:
Write down a unique strong password for each service you use, and keep them in your wallet.

Simply, people can no longer remember passwords good enough to reliably defend against dictionary attacks, and are much more secure if they choose a password too complicated to remember and then write it down. We’re all good at securing small pieces of paper. I recommend that people write their passwords down on a small piece of paper, and keep it with their other valuable small pieces of paper: in their wallet.

Option № 2:
Write down a unique strong password for each service you use, in a “Password Log Book.

Some people joke about this—using a book to physically write your passwords in—but if using a book is the thing that helps you create unique passwords, that are strong, and you can retrieve them when required, that is a very good start. You have this risk, which is that someone may get their hands on the book—but they need physical access. […] So, as a starting point, a book is actually not a bad idea, particularly if you keep it in a safe place at home.

Option № 3:
Use a password management tool, such as NordPass, Dashlane, LastPass, or 1Password.

NordPass is has been a godsend for managing password stress. And free to try.

“[NordPass employs] a zero-knowledge infrastructure, which is to say the company never knows your master password and thus can never decrypt your data.”

Use a safe, privacy-first browser

StrongPasswordGenerator.com recommends the Brave browser, because it’s secure, fast, and private—with an adblocker built in.

Whichever browser you choose to use, make sure that you upgrade your browser.

Check whether a data breach included your email account ?

Use Troy Hunt’s;–have i been pwned? website to find out whether any of your email addresses have been included in data breaches.

Also, subscribe to ‘;–have i been pwned?’s Notify Me service, so that the website can email you if your email address is included in any future data breaches.

If you find the ‘;–have i been pwned? website useful, you might like to donate to Troy Hunt to show your appreciation!

Check which apps have permission to access your social media accounts 🛂

Have you ever given a third-party app or website permission to access your online accounts, such as your social media accounts or your office software accounts? For example, have you clicked “OK” when playing a new game on Facebook without reading the terms and conditions, or have you tweeted from an app that’s not Twitter?

If the developers of those third-party apps and websites manage their security rigorously, you shouldn’t have a problem. However, if any of those third-party apps or websites have poor security practices, or if the developers decide to produce spam or offensive content, you could lose valuable data—or your reputation.

Check which third-party apps and websites can access:

Then:

  1. revoke access from every app you don’t absolutely trust;
  2. log out of every session you don’t absolutely need.

Use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) 🌐

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to browse the web anonymously, unblock websites, access unlimited streaming, and hide your IP address while doing all of that.

After reviewing many top-ranked VPNs, my recommendation is NordVPN. NordVPN uses a network of over 5,200 VPN servers spanning 62 countries, works on every device, employs best-in-class privacy and security, is registered in Panama (which has strict laws concerning information disclosure), unblocks popular online services (including Spotify, Facebook, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Google, Amazon Prime, and HBO), can help you watch your favorite sports from your device—and actually works with Netflix!
