Setting or updating your strong password
A key method of best securing your account is ensuring that your Remagine bank account is secured with a strong password.
Here are some things we advise you NOT to use:
- Your name in any form -- first, middle, last, maiden, spelled backwards, nickname or initials.
- Any ID number or user ID in any form, even spelled backwards.
- Part of your user ID or name.
- Any common name, e.g., Sue, Joe.
- Passwords of fewer than eight characters.
- The name of a close relative, friend, or pet.
- Your phone or office number, address, birthday, or anniversary.
- Acronyms, geographical or product names, and technical terms.
- Any all-numeral passwords, e.g., your license-plate number, social-security number.
- Names from popular culture, e.g., Harry_Potter, Sleepy.
- A single word either preceded or followed by a digit, a punctuation mark, up arrow, or space.
- Words or phrases with all the vowels or white spaces deleted.
- Words or phrases that do not mix upper and lower case, or do not mix letters or numbers, or do not mix letters and punctuation.
- Any word that exactly matches a word in a dictionary, forward, reversed, or pluralized, with some or all of the letters capitalized, or with any of the following substitutions:
- a -> 2, a -> 4, e -> 3, h -> 4, i -> 1, l -> 1, o -> 0, s -> $, s -> 5, z -> 5
So, how do you have a "strong" password that is easy to remember? While it may seem tough to do this, there are a few simple tips that can make it easy.Note: the examples below illustrate just the concepts being discussed. No single technique should be used on its own, but rather should be used with other techniques. The combination of several will produce a strong password.
- Use a mix of alphabetical and numeric characters.
- Use a mixture of upper- and lowercase; passwords are case sensitive.
- Use symbols if the system allows (spaces shouldn't be used as some applications may trim them away)
- Use a combination of letters and numbers, or a phrase like "many colors" using only the consonants, e.g., mnYc0l0rz or a misspelled phrase, e.g., 2HotPeetzas or ItzAGurl .
- Pick something obscure:
- an odd character in an otherwise familiar term, such as phnybon instead of funnybone;
- a combination of two unrelated words like cementhat
- An acronym for an easy to remember quote or phrase (see below)
- a deliberately misspelled term, e.g., Wdn-G8 (Wooden Gate) or HersL00kn@U (Here's looking at you).
- Replace a letter with another letter, symbol or combination, but don’t be too obvious about it. Replacing o with 0 or a with 2 or i with 1 is something that hackers just expect. It is definitely better than nothing, but replacing 0 with () would be stronger as it makes your password longer and is not as obvious
- An easily phonetically pronounceable nonsense word, e.g., RooB-Red or good-eits .
- Two words separated by a non-alphabetic, non-numeric, or punctuation character, e.g., PC%Kat or dog,~1#
