Use a Passphrase for your Password
The easiest way to remember your password is to use a so-called passphrase. Passphrases are generally very difficult to crack, and offer a higher level of security than passwords. Combining words to make a phrase, with a few misspellings and a character substitution or two, can make a good password.
For example, try the following passphrases:
|General Passphrase||Resulting Email Password|
|I would really love to work for you!||Iwrl2w4y!|
|Go Down McLoughlin Boulevard, 2nd on the Right!||GDMB2ndR!|
|what you see is what you get???||wusiwUg???|
- Keep your password secure, do not share or disclose it.
- Change your password periodically.
- If your password becomes known or is suspected to be known by another user, the password should be changed immediately.
- Passwords should not be written down, unless they are locked in a secure location.
- The password should not be displayed in any visible area or where it can be discovered.
- Don't forget to log off.
