Protect Your Pa$$W0rD

Message from Thames Valley Police


As we spend more time at home and on our online devices, over one third (34%) of people say that they’re more concerned about cybercrime than physical crime and a startling 1 in 5 people are a victim of cybercrime!* You could be more at risk than you might think.


If strengthening your passwords is something you keep putting off, or you feel overwhelmed by the sea of online security information, you’re not alone.


As part of our Cyberhood Watch initiative, launched in 2019 in partnership with Avast, we have launched a PROTECT YOUR Pa$$W0Rd campaign that targets both the overwhelmed and complacent, providing everyone with 3 easy steps to be more secure online.


PROTECT YOUR Pa$$W0Rd in 3 easy steps

  1. Create a separate password for your email account

  2. Use 3 random words

  3. Turn on two-factor authentication (2FA)

To find out more about how to do each step visit our Password Protection page on our website https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/passwords.
