Tips for a Secure Password

With these recommendations, you can create a secure password that protects you and your data against unauthorized access.

Recommendations for a secure password:
  • Use a unique password for each account
  • Do not use words that can be found in dictionaries (or common misspellings of those words)
  • Do not use details from your personal life, such as birthdays, your name, etc.
  • Do not share your password
  • Change your password regularly (Recommendation: Every 90 days)

When you set up or edit your password on the Change Password page (US | CA), a security check will guide you towards creating a better password.
