Unit 4 – Task – Question 2

Question 2: Create or find a classroom resource that teaches students about creating strong passwords, passcodes or passphrases

Strong passwords are the ones that are difficult to guess and often require a mix of uppercase, lowercase, numbers and symbols. Strongest passwords require a minimum of 16 characters, however, a password between 8 and 16 characters is said to provide a good level of security.

Therefore, when creating a password, we should avoid setting an easy-to-guess password such as our date of birth and hometown. Passwords that are low in characters or consist of only numbers or letters are also not secure. For example, the following passwords are considered weak and unsafe: 12345678, abcd1234, football, superman… The passwords are considered strong and secure for example: Tech@Gaubong123, DongNoi1234@queta…

To test the password is strong or weak, you can refer to the website (https://howsecureismypassword.net). Attention: don’t use your real password to test.

The following websites can show you how to create strong passwords:
