Three random words are still one of the best passwords, experts say

The  UK’s National Cyber Security Centre would like to politely remind you that three random words are a good, secure password. Why am I telling you this? Because everything, increasingly, wants you to have a unique account and password for its service.

Citing several ideas like length, impact, novelty, and usability as reasons to choose three-word passwords, the NCSC recommends a three-word password because it bypasses some of the most common ways that criminals crack passwords. These are things like single words with predictable substitutions (5 for S, or ! for 1) and brute-force techniques that rely on shorter passwords to succeed. “The stereotypical password is a single dictionary word or name, with predictable character replacements,” says the NCSC.
