Password Tips: excerpt from our Guide to Hardening WordPress from Attackers.
Computers are getting faster all the time, and just because we feel like a password is strong does not mean that it is. A secure password is at least 12 characters (a number that will only increase as computing power grows), and makes use of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters (^%$#@*?!). Consider using a lengthy passphrase, or better yet, download a password manager to enable you to keep long and secure passwords for all digital logins.
Important: a 25+ character passphrase with only lower case letters and spaces is exceedingly more secure than a 8 character password that uses all of the different character types, specifically due to computation time increasing exponentially with added characters. Additionally, the 25+ character passphrase will likely be far easier to remember!
Example: "j!bBeR!$h?!@" (12 characters), or "pigeons swiftly exceed housecat landspeed" (41 characters)? The password with 41 characters is safer, and easier to remember! Switch to passphrases today!
