Who can create the most secure password in your family?
Digital Wizards Password Activity

Session length: 30 Minutes

Learning outcome: To understand how to create safe and secure passwords.

Session plan:

Challenge your child to think of a new safe and secure password. Remind them that it needs to be something memorable! Write it down on a piece of paper.

Ask your child what he/she has included to make the password as secure as possible.

Click on the image below and ask your child to type in the password. This will then tell you how secure it is and how quickly a computer program could discover it.

 

 

 

 

Can your child create a better password that would take longer for a computer to work out? Give some time to try out some different passwords on the website.

Watch the video below to learn how to create a secure password that you will be able to remember.

Discuss the ideas shared in the video.

Ask your child to create a new password using the image below as a guide. Write it down below the one created earlier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check how secure the new password is. Is it better than their first one? Compare the two and discuss why one is more difficult to discover than the other.

Ask your child to share what he/ she has learnt and why passwords are so important.

I wonder who the password champion is? Take a screenshot of your best time then ask an adult to upload it to our Facebook and/ or Twitter page (please don’t share your password):
