Create or find a classroom resource that teaches students about creating strong passwords, passcodes or passphrases.
Create passphrases that are:
- Long: at least 14 characters long, using four or more random words. The longer your passphrase the more secure it is.
- Unpredictable: use a random mix of four or more unrelated words. No famous phrases, quotes or lyrics.
- Unique: not re-used across multiple accounts.
If a website or service requires a complex password including symbols, capital letters, or numbers, you can include these in your passphrase. Your passphrase should still be long, unpredictable and unique for the best security.
