Create a Random Password

Password tips

  • Write down all your user names, email addresses, passwords, and secret questions.

  • Be sure to note any capitalization.

  • Do not use recognizable words or personal information like pets names and dates of birth.

  • If you can pronounce your password, then it's a bad password.  Use random letters and numbers.

  • Use a different password for each online account, not the same two passwords over and over again.

  • Do not change your passwords unless they are poor choices or someone else knows them.

  • Do not reset your password until you have someone else try again on a different computer.

  • A prompt for a "Security key" or "Passphrase" just means your password.  It's the same thing.
