What makes a password strong?

There are only two essential requirements for a strong password:

  • It should be long: Really long. 17 characters should be the minimum. For some future proofing, making it at 20+ characters is better.
  • It should be random: Hackers are excellent at recognizing patterns and programming their tools to look for them.
