Choose a secure password

Here are some suggestions for creating passwords our system will accept:

  • Choose a password that is not easy to guess.
  • Please do not use passwords based on dictionary words or personal information
  • Some combinations of dictionary words, and some foreign words are not allowed even if they are reversed or otherwise modified.
  • Passwords must be 7 or 8 characters in size and may not contain a semi-colon (;) or double quotes (").
  • Passwords should not contain sequential characters i.e., 9876543.

Example of a valid password: maya4you
We suggest that you habitually choose passwords in this manner even if you are not forced to do so. Remember that the security of anything that is password protected is only as good as the password used to protect it.
