Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


Dear Coordinator,
You will have seen the recent Alert message from our national office about the new NHW security campaign for Passwords. To make it easier for you to send on the key information to all your members, this is summarised below. Please help your members by passing this on to them.

Some background facts on online security:
  • 1 in 5 people say they are a victim of cybercrime.
  • 34% of people are more concerned about cybercrime than physical crime.
  • Covid-19 restrictions make people more reliant on online devices.
  • Our online security has never been more important.
Advice around cybersecurity can be confusing, but the NHW Passwords campaign can help. If you feel overwhelmed with ever-changing password advice, our content will reassure you that you are not alone, and we will help you through each simple step!

Protect your Pa$$W0rD focuses on 3 simple, quick steps:
1. Create a separate password for your email account
2. Use 3 random words
3. Turn on two-factor authentication (2FA)

For more detail on these steps, go to
