Secure Password tips for producing your own password:

  • Use a mixture of upper and lower-case letters, numbers and symbols.
  • Don’t use the same password for multiple services.
  • Avoid words contained in the dictionary, instead put together random letters you can remember.
  • Never keep plain-text lists of passwords.
  • Password length is more important that complexity – aim for 12-15 characters.
  • Don’t share your password with anyone else, no matter how much you trust them!
  • Change your passwords regularly, but don’t simply change one or two characters.
  • Avoid patterns like ‘qwerty’ or ‘1234’.
  • Don’t use names of people or places that are important to you.
