Create a strong password

  1. Strong passwords help prevent unauthorized people from accessing files, programs, and other resources, and should be difficult to guess or crack. A good password:
    1. Is at least eight characters long
    2. Doesn't contain your user name, real name, or company name
    3. Doesn't contain a complete word
    4. Is significantly different from previous passwords
    5. Contains uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols
