- At least one upper case character, lower case character and number.
As a recommendation for a strong password. It should include a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols (e.g. !, @, #, $). It should also be around 12-14 characters long. For more security, consider using a word that does not exist in a dictionary and make sure that the newly created password is slightly or significantly different to your previous passwords.
