What is a strong password?
The strength of a password depends on the different types of characters that you use, the overall length of the password, and whether the password can be found in a dictionary. It should be eight (8) or more characters long and include a combination of at least three (3) upper and/or lowercase letters, punctuation, symbols, and numbers.
