What can I use as a password?

Passwords must be at least five characters long and can include pretty much any letters, numbers, and symbols. Some of the most commonly used passwords or easy-to-guess passwords such as 'password,' '123456,' 'qwerty,', and 'atlasquest' are not allowed at all. The exact list changes at times, but if you try to use a banned password, Atlas Quest will let you know.

A strong password will have a combination of letters (both lowercase and uppercase, since passwords are case-sensitive), numbers, and symbols. One easy method of creating a truly bizarre and difficult password is to take a favorite quote, such as "To be, or not to be, that is the question!" The first word, "to," could be changed into a 2. The word, "be," could be changed into B. The third word, "or," doesn't map directly to a letter or number, so we'll just take the first letter of the word and use "o". Continuing through the whole phrase, we end up with "2Bon2B,titq!". That is not a password that would be easy to crack, but is still surprisingly easy to remember.
