Choosing a password

Back to LPC's Privacy Statement

When you enter a new password, make sure you enter one that is not likely to be guessed by anyone. Here are some other tips for choosing a password:

  • Use at least 8 characters.
  • Use a combination of upper- and lower-cased letters, numbers, and special characters (!@#$%&*).
  • Make the password unique to to this login only; don't use it for any other purposes.
  • Don't use a word that can be found in the dictionary.
  • If you have to write your password down, put it somewhere that only you have access to.
  • When you log in, make sure that nobody is watching you.
  • Don't share your password with anybody.
  • If you think someone might know your password, change it.

One effective method for choosing a password is to think of a sentence, and use the first letter of each word in addition to numbers and special characters.

For example, My number one baseball team is the Oakland A's!

Password: Mn1btitOA!

Passwords are case-sensitive.
