Your password must be at least 10 characters long and uses a combination of at least 3 of the following: lowercase letters, upper case letters, numbers, and special characters (!@#$%^&*()_+=~`. ). To make it easier to remember, use a passphrase — a sequence of random words that may contain mixed case, numbers and punctuation (e.g. NeverWent2->Bali!. or Been.to.Greece.2o04.). If you’re not yet using a passphrase, consider changing it to one now.
We recommend creating a strong and secure password or passphrase. Take the Password Test to validate the strength of your password or passphrase.
