The password validator we use relies on its own algorithm and dictionary for validation. It checks to make sure that you don't use common words or series of characters (such as 123, abcd, aaa).
So, if you want to have a strong password, it should follow some of these guidelines
- be at least 7 characters long
- include at least one uppercase and lowercase character
- include a digit or special characters (such as ! @ # $ %)
but more importantly
- NOT use common words or series of characters
