Change Password

You should choose a password or phrase that is long enough to be difficult to guess, a minimum of 8 characters which should include capital letters, numerics and punctuation symbols. Some good practice:

  • Never use a password more than once;
  • Use a password or phrase of significant length;
  • Use all types of character available;
  • Consider using a longer phrase. Never use a single dictionary word – it is one of the first tests a hacker will try –and succeed.

Try not to write your password down.  Rather make a record of a password prompt to remind you what it is.

This site requires strong passwords.  You may wish to use a password generator like the one at
