You can choose to create a password (8-15 characters) or passphrase (16+ characters). A passphrase is an easy-to-remember phrase of 16 or more characters, including spaces (e.g., a line to your favorite song or movie). Fewer restrictions apply to passphrases than passwords. With passphrases, you have more flexibility with the words you are allowed to use and are not required to use symbols and special characters. Use the table below to review the rules for each.
