How To Find your Wi-Fi network password in Windows
A password is a string of characters used for authenticating a user on a computer system. While usernames are generally public information, passwords are private to each user. … Most passwords are comprised of several characters, which can typically include letters, numbers, and most symbols, but not spaces.
The key aspects of a strong password are length (the longer the better); a mix of letters (upper and lower case), numbers, and symbols, no ties to your personal information, and no dictionary words.
