What makes a password strong?
Strong passwords are unique and random.
Humans aren’t very good at coming up with passwords that are either of those things, let alone both. So we created the 1Password Strong Password Generator to create secure, memorable passwords for you. 81% of data breaches are caused by reused or weak passwords, so random, unique passwords are your best defense against online threats.
Why should my password be unique?
If you use the same password for both your email account and your bank account login, an attacker only needs to steal one password to get access to both accounts, doubling your exposure. If you've used that same password for 14 different accounts, you're making the attacker's job very, very easy. You can protect yourself by using a generator to create unique passwords that are easy to remember.
Why should my password be random?
Random passwords are hard to guess and harder for computer programs to crack. If there's a discernible pattern, the odds of an attacker using a brute force attack and gaining access to your account goes up exponentially. Random passwords might contain a jumble of unrelated characters, but combining unrelated words also works. That's how the 1Password Strong Password Generator creates passwords that are easy to remember but still cryptographically strong.
