Recovering Your Password

Common Errors

Below are the common errors you might run into when resetting your password.

1. Password is too weak.

To create a strong enough password it:

  • must be between 8-30 characters
  • must contain at least one number
  • must not be easy to guess **
  • must not contain slashes or spaces

**A password is considered easy to guess if it uses a common password or a variation of it. For example, the word 'password' is one of those common words that are unavailable. This means a password like "password12345" will be considered too weak and will not be accepted.

2. New passwords don’t match.
