How to Construct a Secure Password

Making a secure password is the best way to protect your information. Below are some Do's and Don'ts to help you make a password that is both secure and easy to remember.

DO

  1. Always make your password at least 8 characters long. We allow up to 16 characters. Longer passwords are generally more secure than shorter ones.
  2. Use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols ($&#*@). We require you to use at least one alpha character and one numeric character.
  3. Use a phrase to make it easy for you to remember. (Example: Every day is another opportunity for sunshine = Ediaofs)
  4. Vary where you capitalize a letter within the phrase. (ediaoFs)
  5. Pick a number to use in combination with the phrase (Example: to remind yourself to change your password every month on the 21st, use 21 as a part of your password.)
  6. Substitute symbols for letters or numbers. (Example: $ for s or * for 8.)
  7. Using the above tips, you might construct a password that looks like this: EdianF$21

DON'T

  1. Don't use common dictionary words.
  2. Don't use family names or pet names.
  3. Don't use your birth date, phone number or social security number.
