Information Technology Department: Creating a Safe Password

Tips for Creating a Strong Password

  • Create a password at least 8 characters long  

  • Use letters and numbers

  • Use both upper and lower case letters  

  • Exchange some letters with numbers

  • Try using a sentence to create a password. The first letter of each word is a character in the password

  • Think of words that can be exchanged for numbers

  • Choose a sentence that describes something you like to do, your favorite food, or even your favorite hobby

  • Special characters will NOT work for Google passwords - examples: !, *, $, ?, #

  For example: Lucy loves to dance in tutus
  Password: Ll2di22s
