Requirements:

  1. Your password must be at least 16 characters in length.

    1. The litmus test here is "can I search for this word on the web and get hits?" If it does, try another!
  2. Mix it up! Use misspelled words, spaces, numbers and punctuation - all of which strengthen passwords.
    1. Example: My C@ts are 2 Qute!
