Your password should meet the following criteria to increase your protection:

  • It should contain at least 7 characters
  • It should have at least one upper case letter
  • It should have at least one lower case letter
  • It should contain at least one number


These additional tips will help increase the strength of your password

  • Don’t use English or even words from another language.
  • Use different kinds of characters in your password such as #@!&.
  • Change passwords often (every month to six weeks).
  • Don’t write your passwords on a sticky note and post it on your monitor/computer/desk.
  • Use Passwords for your mobile devices like iPads and smart phones.
  • Use a different password for each log-in account you have. One for the bank, one for school, one for work, one for Facebook, etc…
  • Don’t give your password to others
