In honor of National Change your Password, February 1st I thought I would share information on passwords with you.

Your password is strong if it meets these conditions:

  • 12 – 14 characters
  • lower & UPPER case
  • Random
  • Not used more than once
  • Not a dictionary word, sequence, name of pet or person

Your password is weak if it is:

  • default password
  • dictionary words
  • words with numbers
  • double words
  • common sequences of letters or numbers
  • identifiers (name, phone)
  • anything personal
