I’ve written about what I consider the best current password advice for websites and services you need to keep secure. In a nutshell, here’s the advice again:
- Use multi-factor authentication (MFA).
- Where MFA is not an option, use password managers, creating unique, long-as-possible, random passwords for each website or security domain.
- Where password managers aren’t possible, use long, simple passphrases.
- In all cases, don’t use common passwords (e.g., “password” or “qwerty”) and never reuse any password between different sites.
