Clark Student Email Password Criteria

 

Passwords must be between 9-14 characters long and include one special character. Examples of special characters are:

 

 

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!
I ate a cookie! I8acookie!
