Password Complexity Requirements

You must follow these rules when creating a new password for your Millville Public Schools account. 

1. Cannot contain your account name or parts of your full name that exceed

2. Must be at least 15 characters in length.
We are recommending that our users use passphrases vs passwords.

3.  No need for complexity rules!

Although you can still use special characters, capital letters, or numbers, it is no longer a requirement.

  • Uppercase characters (A through Z) 
  • Lowercase characters (a through z)
  • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
  • Non-alphabetic (for example !, $, #, %)


Suggestions for Creating a Pass Phrase

Step 1 – Add words to create a phrase

Let’s say you like to read. Add some words around it so that it makes sense to you in a meaningful way:

ilovetoread

That’s a good start, but it could do with being longer. Be more specific:


Ilovetoreadmysteries


Step 2 – Add capitals for emphasis

You passphrase as it currently stands is a lot stronger than the original password. However, it needs more detail. Add capitals, as if you are emphasizing each word (in your head):


ILovetoReadMysteries


Step 3 – Add punctuation for creative flair

Consider this step as a decorative element, as if you are now considering your passphrase visually. To make it easier, add punctuation at the beginning and at the end:


ILovetoReadMysteries!


Step 4 – Add spaces to add further complexity

A lot of people are unaware of the fact that you can add spaces to your passphrase. This makes it much more complex:


I Love to Read Mysteries!

 

Step 5 – Add block capitals to go one step further

Your passphrase is in good shape. However, a ‘final topping’ will add another layer of security – block capitals:


I LOVE to Read Mysteries!


So there you have it. Five easy steps that takes you from a weak, single word password to a stronger, more complex passphrase.

Passages from poems, lyrics from songs, dialog from movies, and sayings that only your family uses all the time make good passphrases. Create something that makes you smile every time that you type it in.
