   Maximum length

There’s a maximum number of 32 characters allowed.

   Minimum complexity

A password consisting of letters (like ‘passwordpit)’ is too weak and won’t be accepted.

You need a minimum combination of letters and numbers (e.g. passwordpit01)

   Password history

A new password cannot be too similar to a previous one so you need to use something totally different.

   Security tip

Mix up lowercase & uppercase letters, numbers and symbols to create a strong password (instead of a weak one).
