How to create a strong password

Last updated: May 2, 2019 

A strong password can help to safeguard your personal and confidential information because it is extremely hard to guess or crack. When you secure your personal data by creating a strong password, you place a barrier between your information and cyber criminals who want to steal it for their own gain, no matter the cost to you. Take a step toward better protecting the theft of your identity, your money, and your personal information by creating strong passwords for all of your accounts.

Use a Password Generator

It is not always easy to create a strong password. Especially if you are in the process of creating a new one for each of your password-protected accounts. It is important not to use the same password twice. A password generator, such as the Norton Identity Safe Password Generator, can save time and effort by creating strong passwords for you at the click of a button.

It works by requesting some information from you, such as how many characters you want in your password. Choose to include letters, numbers, mixed case or not, and punctuation in your strong password.  If you do not change any of the default settings, the password generator will create one 12-character password that includes mixed-case letters, numbers and punctuation with no similar characters.  Use the Quantity pulldown menu to request more than one password if you want to generate them in bulk. When done making your selections, click or tap the Generate Password(s) button to create a strong password.
