About the Passwords campaign

We’re asking Victorians, will your password pass the test of time?

We know cybersecurity sometimes gets overlooked amongst the competing demands of our day to day.

To get Victorians thinking about their password hygiene, we’re encouraging you to head to the Service Victoria website to test the strength of a password using a new, secure online tool. 

The tool is complemented by advice that empowers community members to implement 6 easy steps to improve their password hygiene:

  • Use passphrases (four or more random words)
  • Use a different password for each account
  • Make your passwords harder to guess by avoiding predictable words
  • Use a password manager
  • Update your passwords when required
  • Turn on multi-factor authentication

Help share the message

To support Victorians to protect themselves from cyber threats, we need your help to share the message. 

To support this campaign, we have created this page which includes a range of tools and resources for you to share the campaign messaging to your stakeholders and networks in the Victorian community.  

You can share these materials on your own channels (for example, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram) to help spread the message and awareness.
