How Long Should My Password Be?

< All Topics

The longer the password the more secure it will be. The absolute minimum requirement for most systems is typically 8 characters although the longer the better.

A good way to create a strong password is using the 3 random words approach. Include numbers and symbols if you can. Using 3 random words helps you to increase the password length while still being able to remember it. However, don’t use words personal to you that others will find easy to guess such as children, spouse or pet names, place of birth or your favourite sports team.
