Password Guidelines

The new Identity Management System will require you to reset your password every 6 months. In addition, rules will be different from what we have entered in the past, such as requiring special characters in your password. The new requirements are outlined in the Account Claim process, but here are the basic rules.

New Password Requirements

  • The password must be AT LEAST 8 characters long but LESS than 64.
  • Your password can NOT include your USER ID, FIRST or LAST NAME.

Passwords Must Include:

  • 1 or more upper case letters
  • 1 or more lower case letters
  • 1 or more numbers
  • 1 or more of the following special characters
    • !   _   -   {   }   [   ]   /   .   ? 

Good Examples:

  • "Pass Go and collect $200" - pa??GOandCLCt-200
  • "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall" - humTdumt?/sat0nAwa11
  • "It is raining cats and dogs!" - 1tsrAIn1NGcts_DGS!
  • Sport Scores - WorldChampions1967-GBP
  • Bengal Pride - R0ar3engalsroar-no.1

 

Remember, the goal is to create a password that you can remember, but is hard for someone else to guess.  These rules help keep your data safe and secure.
