Choosing a secure password

When setting or resetting a password the system will show you a strength bar assessing your password. You must keep typing into the password field until the strength bar reaches its maximum rating of 'very strong'.

Watch this video to see an example of someone successfully entering a secure password:


The text underneath the strength bar will give you some hints to help you improve your password.

If you are having trouble thinking of a password which is strong enough, try using a short, easy to remember sentence, like "I don't like Monday traffic", or a list of three things, like a colour, an animal and a food.

If the strength bar doesn't appear for you please contact your lead or the helpdesk.
