  Creating a strong password

 If you don’t use a password manager in your browser that can generate a password for you, here are some examples to create one manually:

  1. Use a passphrase, line from a book or poem that you know and add punctuation etc (Passphrase, the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog), the numbers are from my postcode:     7TQbf,Jotld#3
  2. Or see here, Strong Random Password Generator (
  3. And if you want to get really geeky go here:  GRC | Ultra High Security Password Generator
