Creating a Password

Do:

- Have both upper and lower case letters.
- Have digits and/or punctuation characters as well as letters.
- Are easy to remember, so they do not have to be written down.
- Are seven or eight characters long.
- Can be typed quickly, so someone else cannot look over your shoulder and learn it.

Do Not Include:

- Personal information such as your name, phone number, social security number, birth date or address. Even names of acquaintances and the like should not be used.
- Any word in the dictionary, or based closely on such a word (such as a word spelled backwards).
- A word with letters simply replaced by digits. For example, bl0wf1sh is not a strong password.
- Letter/number combinations that are easy to spot while you're typing them in. Passwords like 12345, qwerty (i.e., all keys right next to each other), or nnnnnn should be avoided.
