The Right Reverend James Langstaff urges parishioners to use Bible passages to create account passwords

The Bishop of Rochester says the Bible can be key for his prishioners’ online security.

This Easter, The Right Reverend James Langstaff is urging Christians to use Bible quotations and references to help them remember passwords for private accounts and websites.

He said: “The Bible offers a life-long source of new passwords, that can include both upper and lower case letters and numbers to help create memorable, secure passwords.”

The technique requires the user to choose a favourite Bible passage, remembering the book, chapter and verse numbers. Users need to take the first letter from each word in the quote and then add the book of the Bible, chapter and verse at the end.

This will give upper and lower case letters with numbers. For example, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” Luke Chapter 23 Verse 46. The password created would be FiyhIcmsL23V46

Or, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” John Chapter 12 Verse 13. The password created would be BihwcitnotLJ12V13

The Bishop added: “This is an easy way for school pupils and adults alike to remember new passwords and passages from the Bible at the same time. I like to think it’s a bit of fun with a life-long learning element.”
