What are the password requirements?

Categories: Information for your IT and Legal teams

We require passwords to be 8+ characters and to be reasonably difficult for someone to hack.

This means:

  • The password isn't one of the 10,000 most common passwords (e.g. "password", "12345678" or "sunshine")
  • The password isn't one of the 10,000 most common passwords simply replacing letters with numbers or adding an exclamation mark (e.g. "p4ssw0rd!" or "5un5h1n3")

The above passwords can be discovered using hacking tools in less than a second (!)

We recommend using a combination of 3 or 4 words. Like "Cow Eat Lemon" or "Oh A Dog Hat". These passwords are very secure against hacking, and very easy to remember.
