Password Policy

To enhance your experience of this website and to access all the features, we recommend that you register an account. You will need to specify your email address and choose a password, and the combination of both enables us to link you to your account.

Although you may not realise it, choosing a password is a vital step in this process, and on this page we give some guidance on how to choose a password that is more secure and harder to guess. As most things are online these days, this means one more password that you will need to remember; but please read on for details.

Why your password needs to be secure

If someone managed to guess your password, and knew your email address, they would be able to log in to your account without your consent. They might see information that is private and use it for malicious purposes. These days it is very easy for “computer hackers” to create a program that tries to guess the password thousands of times, for example trying every word in the English dictionary (which is just a basic example).

In an ideal world the password for your Pygott & Crone website account would be as secure as the ones you use for your vital online services like your bank, bills, social media and so on.

What makes a secure password?

In a nutshell, using different combinations of lower case, uppercase, numbers and symbols – and the length of the password; the longer the better generally. A good starting point is to think of a partial word or phrase and add some numbers and symbols, and make some letters uppercase.
