About Passwords

  • Passwords must contain at least 8 and at most 16 characters

  • They should not contain a space, a UK pound sign ( £ ), a quote character ( " ), a less than symbol ( < ) or any character not on a standard UK keyboard

  • Strong, memorable passwords of 16 or fewer characters can be constructed by putting together three random short words or names together with one or two capitals, symbols or numbers thrown in.
