Passwords are the gatekeepers to our digital lives. However, not all passwords are created equal. The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) suggests an intuitive yet strong password strategy: using three random words. For example, “NoisyBluePorcupine”. By doing so, you’re creating a password that’s not only easy for you to remember, but is also long and uncommon enough to be considered strong against brute force attacks.
The idea is that three unrelated words are both difficult to guess and also harder to crack. A password like “NoisyBluePorcupine” would take centuries to crack with a brute force attack, given the current state of technology.
Using this methodology, we have created a simple three random word password generator, using an adjective, a colour and an animal. Please have a go at generating a password below:
