What is a password?

A password is a secret string of characters, including words, numbers, and others. These are used for authentication to show the user identity for gaining access to information or a resource.

The password is meant to be kept secret from those not allowed access.

In information technology, passwords are essential for protecting data and accessing various accounts, such as Outlook emails or the Microsoft account for Windows users.
