How to ensure your password is secure

Image for article: How to ensure your password is secure
We often get asked how to create a secure password.  There are many different ways, but one option is to do the following:
  1. Create a short sentence which is personal to you, which you can remember, e.g. At the weekend, I love to paddle in the sea.
  2. Take the first 2 letters of each word in the sentence: Atthwe,Ilotopainthse.
  3. Change at least one character to be a symbol: Atthwe,Ilotopainth$e.
  4. Change at least one character to be number: Atthwe,Ilotopainth$3.
This provides a really secure password which will make perfect sense to you but appears completely random to on-lookers.

Remember, if your password can ever be recovered, rather than being reset, it has not been encrypted correctly!  This is therefore a security risk as your password could be exposed to hackers if they gained access to that system.
For added security, always utilise a different password for every system or website you use!
