Hints for creating a new username or password...

[ Edited ]

It’s sometimes tricky coming up with a username that isn’t already taken or a password that’s not too simple.


In an effort to help, we’ve come up with a few tips:


  • A strong password consists of at least twelve characters (and the more characters, the stronger the password) that are a combination of letters, numbers and symbols (@, #, $, %, etc.) if allowed.
  • Do not include your user name or real name.
  • Do not include a complete word.
  • Your password is significantly different from previous passwords.

Re: Hints for creating a new username or password...

More hints..


use your name but spell it backwards. 

use your year of birth, backwards

if you want to change your password regularly, use the present month, as words or numbers in the password ..


  So a password could be ... Divad35may


next months password would be ... Divad35june
