Tips for Picking a Secure Password Picking a password can be tricky, so here are a few tips:

Don't use the following passwords
  • 123456
  • abc123
  • monkey
  • qwerty
  • password
  • letmein
These are just a few examples of insecure passwords; any word that's listed in a dictionary is not a safe password and could be easily guessed.

So to create a secure password, it's a good idea to use a mixture of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure all passwords are at least eight characters long (the longer the better).

As an example, if we take the word 'Cumbria' we can make it a bit more secure by mixing the letters up, and swapping numbers for letters. Often 3 is swapped for m, 1 is swapped for i, 7 for r, and A can be replaced by giving you a secure password: C3RAR1B*64781U, which is Cumbria, with a symbol and some numbers also added.
