Password requirements

Here are a few rules to keep in mind when choosing a password:

  • Passwords must be at least 8 characters long.

  • You can’t reuse a password that you've used in the last year.

  • Passwords can contain the following characters:

    • Upper and lowercase letters (A-Z and a-z). Please note that passwords are case-sensitive, so a "G" is different from a "g".

    • Numbers (0-9).

    • The following symbols as well as spaces: ! " # $ % & ‘ ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^ { | } ~

  • Certain passwords that are easy to guess like "12345678" can’t be chosen.

  • See Google's article here for help choosing a strong password.
