WordPress Password Tips

WordPress Password Security Basics

Your WordPress password should meet the following requirements:

  • Include numbers, capitals, special characters (@, #, *, etc.)
  • Be long (10 characters – minimum; 50 characters – ideal)
  • Can include spaces and be a passphrase (Just don’t use the same password in multiple places)
  • Change passwords every 120 days, or 4 months

It would be my recommendation to use the generate password feature in WordPress. I know that lots of you hate having to save or even try to remember a password like rQ)C2ZA%aC^N)fVXBjQFxOV^ but if its hard for you it makes even harder for a hacker to find and crack it.
