HAC Password Requirements

 

Password Best Practices – How to choose good passwords:

A good password is:

  • private: it is used and known by one person only;
  • secret: it does not appear in clear text in any file or program or on a piece of paper pinned to the monitor;
  • easily remembered: so there is no need to write it down;
  • must be at least 8 characters long;
  • a mixture of at least 3 of the following: upper case letters, lower case letters, digits and symbols;
  • not listed in a dictionary of any major language;
