Password Information

Password Tips

Password: A secret code that allows you to access all of your sensitive data, including your email, files, and grades.

Use an expression or phrase

The expression “you can’t have your cake and eat it too” can be abbreviated like so:  y00chycaei2! 

Exchange numbers for letters

Exchange O’s for zero’s, I’s for 1’s, and E’s for 3’s.

Use special characters

These include ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + | = ` ~

Do not use names of your pets or family members

These are often publicly known to your friends and are easily guessed.

Consider using a password manager to generate complex passwords

Keep it private!

NEVER give your password to anyone, even if you are asked for it. No legitimate company will ever request this information from you, as there are processes in place for you to reset it.
