Passwords are secret combinations of letters, numbers, and/or characters. This is your key to your account. Create a secure password here!

The most secure password is one made up of 10 or more random characters.

Keep your password private. Only Mom and Dad and whoever runs the system should know your password. If you give out your password, you lose control of your identity. Do tell Mom and Dad, they are there to help you not make a huge mistake!
 
Choose a password that is easy to remember for you, but hard for someone else to guess. Keep a paper password list hidden at home in case you forget. Give a copy to Mom and Dad.As you get older and use more sensitive sites,avoid keeping even paper copies of passwords. Never keep password lists on your computer.
 
Choose a password you can learn to type accurately and fast. Most applications do not show the letters you type so you won’t be able to proof read your password before you send it. The password should be at least seven characters long, ten is better. The longer the password, the more secure, but also the easier it is to make a typing error.
 
Choose a secure password. Use a mix of capital letters, numbers and keyboard characters. Use a phrase instead of a word. This helps you to create an easy to remember password, but harder for someone else or a computer program (like a bot) to guess. Do not use your name, school, address, phone number, or birthdate, or any variation of them. NO PERSONAL INFORMATION!!
 
 
If you think that someone has guessed your password, change it immediately!
 
Have several different passwords that you use often. Write them on your paper list. NEVER STORE PASSWORDS ON THE COMPUTER! If someone guesses one of your passwords, your other accounts are protected.
 
Log out. When you are finished on a site, be sure to log out. This not only protects you from someone else sitting down at your computer and using your account, but also helps to save your information.
