- Select the 'Change Password' button as shown above.

- Click submit to confirm this change.
Guidelines for creating a strong password:
- Never use personal information such as your name, birthday, user name, or email address. This type of information is often publicly available, which makes it easier for someone to guess your password.
- Use a longer password. Your password should be at least six characters long, although for extra security it should be even longer.
- Don't use the same password for each account. If someone discovers your password for one account, all of your other accounts will be vulnerable.
- Try to include numbers, symbols, and both uppercase and lowercase letters.
- Avoid using words that can be found in the dictionary. For example, swimming1 would be a weak password.
- Random passwords are the strongest. If you're having trouble creating one, you can use a password generator instead.
Generally, it is best practice to avoid the following most common passwords:
- Password the same as username
- Personal information as password ( name, city, birthday, family member names)
