Tips on Creating a Password

  • The password must be 8 or more characters in length.
  • It must contain a mix of letters and numbers.
  • It cannot contain any spaces.
  • A good password will not be a normal dictionary word.
    • You could use symbols or numbers in place of letters.
    • For example: byebye! = 8y38y3!
  • Good symbols to use are ! @ # $ % ^ & *
  • Use a mix capital and lowercase letters.
    • For Example: "mypassword" is not the same as "MyPassWord".
  • Use a password that is difficult to guess, yet easy for you to remember without having to write it down. Use a phrase instead of a word.
    • For Example: Use the first letter from each word in a sentence.
      "My car gets 25 miles per gallon" the passphrase
    • could be Mcg25mpG.
    • OR use the whole passphrase MycarGets25mPg@$4Agallon.
