1) Try to make the password a minimum of 12 characters. Ideally, the password should be even longer than this but try to keep 12 characters as your absolute minimum.
2) By including a different combination of numbers, symbols, capital letters and lower case letters it will make your password harder to crack.
3) Try to not use dictionary words or a combination of dictionary words. For example, ‘house’ is a terrible password  or ‘red house’ is also bad.
4) Make sure that your password is not an obvious choice for you. For example, don’t use a family members name or your date of birth as this is easily guessable.
