How to read in Japanese: passphrase

A passphrase is a string of characters that you set to confirm your identity, like a password.

The difference between a password and a passphrase is the number of characters. While a regular password is a word of around 8 characters, a passphrase is a phrase of 10 or more characters, providing greater security.

Random strings of characters, like passwords, are difficult to remember in long sentences, so easy-to-remember phrases are often used (e.g., “Nice to meet you”).

Since you can include spaces (blanks), you may want to set up multiple words connected together instead of a phrase. However, be aware that if you put together a phrase that is easy to understand or words that are relevant to you, as in the current example, the passphrase may be assigned.
