What is a strong password?

A strong password should be hard to guess or break.  It can be difficult to select a new password that meets all the requirements please see these examples you could try:

  • frame your password with a postcode, inserting symbols or numbers half way through, for example a previous home postcode (LS10 4WB) and a pets birthday (010514) would generate ls100105144wb
  • use a family or friends car registration and combine it with other letters and symbols, for example the registration (KD12 GHT) and owner's initials (DHB) would generate KD12GHTDHB
  • to increase the security of your password you could also change a letter within your password to a symbol or number, for example KD12GHTDHB would become KD12G!TDHB
