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


Overall, here are the main characteristics of a good, secure password:

  • Is at least 14 characters long. The longer your password is – the better.
  • Uses uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special symbols. Passwords that consist of mixed characters are harder to crack.
  • Doesn’t contain memorable keyboard paths.
  • Is not based on your personal information.
  • Password is unique for each account you have.

But even if you don’t get reminded to set a strong password, it’s really important to do so whenever you’re setting up a new online account or changing passwords for any existing account.
