Password

Password

A password is a character string designed to protect data from unauthorized access.

A password is stronger if it is a bit more complex.

Remember you can use the entire keyboard to make up a really strong password and the more numbers, letters and symbols it has, the more secure your personal information will be. A password should be a minimum of 8 characters.

How to create a complex password.

  • Try not to use details that could be guessed by people who know you
  • Use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols
  • Never tell your friends or family your password
  • Never email your password to anyone
  • Keep your username and passwords safe
  • Change your password frequently
  • Make your password as long as possible
  • If you suspect that someone else knows your password, you should change it immediately.

Note: a password does not have to be really long to be secure.
