A good password is one that you’ll remember and that won’t be easy for others to figure out. Some tips:
- A combination of letters and numbers is ideal—even better if you mix upper case and lower case letters
- Don’t just use a sequence of letters or numbers (e.g., 12345678 or zyxwvuts)
- Don’t use your name, your username or your company name
- Stay away from numbers like your birthdate
If you need to, write down your password and keep it in a safe place so you don’t forget it.
