Password requirements

When choosing a password keep in mind that it must:

  • be at least 7 characters long
  • contain at least one letter and one number

In addition, passwords cannot solely contain:

  • sequences of letters or numbers (e.g., 12345678, abcdefg)
  • repeated characters (e.g., 222222, aaaaaa)
  • adjacent key placements on a standard keyboard (e.g., QWERTY)

The system will prevent you from choosing a password that:

  • matches any of your four previous passwords
  • matches commonly used passwords (e.g., password123, changeme)
  • uses popular dictionary words in passwords less than 16 characters (e.g., batterystaple)
  • matches your user name or your email address
