About secure passwords

To protect your site, LexBlog requires secure passwords for all user accounts. 

Our password security is measured by zxcvbn, which estimates how long it would take different computational techniques to crack a password. We require passwords of at least medium strength.

You can test passwords and see the amount of time it could take to crack them.

 

Choosing a secure password

Use:

  • At least 12 characters
  • A combination of upper and lower-case letters
  • Punctuation symbols
  • Numbers
  • Spaces 

 

Avoid:

  • Passwords used for another account
  • Single dictionary words
  • First and surnames—especially your name
  • Repeated characters
  • Sequential keyboard characters, e.g., zxcvbn
  • l33tspeak, e.g., l3xbl0g

 

Creating memorable passwords

It's helpful to choose a secure, unique password that's easy to remember. These sample passwords are easier to remember than random characters and satisfy our security requirements:

  • The answer is not 42.
  • What is an Ewok?
  • My 3 blogs are aWesome.

 

Managing passwords

LexBlog recommends using a service like LastPass to create and store passwords.
