For Seniors: Create a Strong Password for Internet Safety

Strong passwords — whether they be for your e-mail account or your computer access — don’t have to be hard to remember, just hard to guess. Although secure passwords use at least ten characters, and include uppercase letters, special characters (such as @ or :), and numbers, they don’t have to be intimidating.

To make your password memorable to you, use a phrase, incorporate shorthand, or create a clever association with something that's important to you (that others won't guess):

  • 2BorNot2B? (to be or not to be)

  • It’s@MyBank (it’s at my bank)

  • Matt6:9-13 (Biblical verse)
