Tips for Choosing a Secure Password

  • Try using a combination of numbers and letters, and symbols.
  • Avoid words that can be found in the dictionary.
  • Substitute letters with numbers or symbols when possible (I.e., ex@mp1e).
  • A phrase with two or more words is effective, especially when substituting numbers for letters.
  • Don’t use the word “Password” or any publicly available information (I.e., your address or birthday).
  • Use different passwords for different accounts.
  • Change your password frequently and never give it out to anyone.
