Creating Super Strong Passwords that are Easy to Remember
Think "Pass Phrase", not "Password"
To update your password, please first enter your current password. The new password will not save until you see a dark green box. Enter the new password again to confirm.
You could use a password like S8raH18!&1, but that's not very fun to remember, nor is it nearly as secure as a longer password with random words put together. It's better to use a phrase. We've found that the combination of three or four random common words is easier to remember and harder to crack!
Examples of Strong Pass Phrases:
Teacher Matt Bobo Yellow
Horse Battery Staple Yea
Plant Green So Clean
Passport Airplane First Class

If you do not wish to use a pass phrase and instead want to create a password, here are some guidelines. Please use at least 8 characters and include:
