Introduction

Follow these helpful tips to create a stronger password.

What to keep in mind

  • Avoid the obvious: A password based on a name, birthday, social security number, or similar information is a bad choice.  
  • Avoid dictionary words: Criminals have software that guesses passwords based on standard language, including words spelled backwards, common misspellings, and common substitutions (e.g. p@ssword).
  • Longer is better: Use a password that is between 8-16 characters.  
  • Use the entire keyboard: Combine numbers, letters (upper and lower case), and symbols to create a unique, secure password. 
  • Make sure you can reset it: Routinely check that you have created a secret question and answer to allow password resets. Avoid submitting secret questions that are very obvious.
