Some useful info on password strength...

Correct Battery Horse Staple Method ALthough the article linked above says it’s “Not correct” The mathematics is sound if you have to remember passwords.

Also check out https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if your email has been present on any sites that have knwon to have been hacked.

As well as https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords to see if any passwords that you like to use have been compromised.

It’s also worthwhile using a password vault for generating and storing credentials so you don’t even have to know the passwords for the site you are using, just a single password for the vault. (This is something I have not done myself yet, but as I’m currently working in Cyber Security I really ought to step up my game!

The key message is vault passwords where possible and activate some sort of multi factor authentication if available (SMS/fingerprint, biometric recognition e.g. face or bloodflow)
