Creating a Strong Password

Your data is only as safe as your password. It's important to choose a strong password to protect your data and online security. There are several factors to take into consideration when choosing a password.

Tips for creating a good password

  • Use both uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Include punctuation marks and/or numbers
  • Use substitutions, such as '@' for the letter 'A,' or '$' for the letter 'S'
  • Make your password at least 6 characters long (required for LogMeIn accounts)

What to avoid when creating a password

  • Don't use a password that contains personal information (name, birthday, etc.)
  • Don't use keyboard patterns (qwerty) or sequential numbers (12345)
  • Don't make your password all numbers, uppercase letters or lowercase letters
  • Don't use the same password for different accounts

Tips for protecting your password

  • Never reveal your password to anyone (including friends, family, etc.)
  • Never send your password by email
  • Periodically change your password to a new one that meets this same criteria
