Essential Password Tips

  • Passwords should be complex. Use uppercase letters and lowercase letters, include symbols, and be at least 8 characters long.
  • Passwords should not be reused. As an example, your banking account should not share a password with your Facebook account.
  • Keep your passwords safe. Refrain from sharing your passwords, having shared accounts, and emailing passwords to others.
