How to Create a Strong Password for Your Google Account

Quick guide for Google Workspace admins and users

What makes a password strong

Having a strong password is an absolute must, and it’s also quite easy:

  • Make sure it includes a relatively equal amount of uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Make sure it includes numbers here and there. 
  • To make it even stronger, you should add some symbols. Spaces are also allowed. 
  • Make it at least 10 characters, the longer – the better.

Make use of all the above to make it as random as possible, yet memorable.

For example, instead of “password”, you can type “p@$SW08D”
