What not to do when selecting a password

  • Don't use single words or numbers
  • Don't use personal information
  • Don't write down your password
  • Don't use the same password for every website
  • Don't give your passwords to anyone

Set up your password recovery options so they are up to date

You should do this because if you forget your password you can recover your password so you don't have to create a new account. Most websites will send you a email or text message so you can get your password.
