Tips for creating a secure password:
Mix numbers with capital and lowercase letters.
Include numbers to replace similar looking letters, e.g. Examp13 instead of ‘example’.
Create a unique acronym, e.g. 1LvCht for ‘I love chocolate’.
Include phonetic replacements, e.g. 'Luv2Laf' for 'Love to Laugh'.
Things to avoid:
Don't use a password that is listed as an example of how to pick a good password.
Don't use a password that contains personal information (name, birth date, etc.)
Don't use words or acronyms that can be found in a dictionary.
Don't use keyboard patterns (asdf) or sequential numbers (1234).
Don't use repeating characters (aa11).
Tips for keeping your password secure:
Never tell your password to anyone.
Never write your password down.
Never send your password by email.
Periodically change your password for increased security.
