Choosing a Good Password
Make sure it is at least 8 characters long, contains special symbols or allowed punctuation and is not based on personal information commonly known about you, for example, a woman running a cat shelter should NOT use catlady as her password.
Write a simple sentence that is easy for you to remember to create your great password:
I have two kids: Jack & Jill becomes the password: Ih2k:JnJ (JackandJill is NOT a good password)
