Weak passwords may be easily guessed or compromised. 

Use Strong Passwords 

Password Security Thumbnail A strong password is defined as a password that requires a minimum of eight characters, with a pre-set degree of complexity through use of special characters as part of the password.  

  • Of the eight characters
    • one of them must be upper case 
    • one must be lower case 
    • one must be a number or special character.  
  • Passwords may not contain any part of your name or login id.  
  • Users will not be allowed to use their most recent three passwords. 

Create a Strong Password  

  • Do not use names of family, friends, or pets as passwords   
  • Do not use easily guessed passwords such as password, qwerty, ABC123   
  • Use a phrase instead of a word. Ex: ILoveMyDog   
  • Replace letters with numbers and special characters: Ex: !L0v3myd0g
