What Are My Password Requirements?

Your password:

  • must include at least 8 characters
  • must include both upper and lower case letters
  • must include at least one number
  • must include at least one special character
  • spaces are allowed

The better the phrase the stronger it is. 

  • "houseflies" is weak
  • "Hou$eFlies" is stronger
  • "Hou$eFlies395" is very strong

Good Passwords

Ideally you want a password that is easy for you to remember but hard for anyone else to figure out.  A short, personal sentence that includes a number and punctuation is a good example of a strong password.

Expired Password

Your password will expire every six months and will need to be reset.

The same requirements above apply, but you cannot use the same previous password.
