Frequently Asked Questions

A passphrase is a sequence of words or other text used to authenticate a user’s identity and provide access to a computer system or digital account.

A passphrase is typically longer and consists of multiple words, while a password is usually shorter and consists of a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Passphrases can be easier to remember and more difficult for hackers to crack.

Using our tool above is a good place to start.  Alternatively, use a combination of random words that are unrelated to each other. Avoid using common phrases or quotes that can be easily guessed or found in a dictionary.

A strong passphrase should be at least 12 characters long, but the longer the better.  Add numbers and non-alphanumeric characters to make it even harder to crack.

Yes, spaces can be used in a passphrase and can help make it more complex.

No, you should use a different passphrase for each of your accounts to minimise the risk of your information being compromised in the event of a breach.  We recommend that password managers are used for this reason.  We recommend Bitwarden and Keeper

No, you should not share your passphrase with anyone, even family members or coworkers. Each person should have their own unique login credentials.

To protect your passphrase, avoid writing it down, use two-factor authentication, and never share it with others.
