Creating a strong password

A strong password is around 10 characters, including uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols. Create a memorable password with these three steps:

  1. Choose three random words and a date that’s easy to recall. “bookspecslight2001”
  2. Add numbers and capitalise a letter from each word. “20booKspecSlighT01
  3. Replace some letters with a special character. “20b00kspecSl&ghT01”
