Creating strong passwords

Computer security includes the use of strong passwords for your network logon and the Administrator account on your computer. In addition, Microsoft Office Accounting files created using Accountant Transfer require a strong password.

Accountant Transfer will not let you advance to the next step unless your password for the transfer file meets the following requirements:

  • It is at least seven characters long.

  • It contains at least one character from each of the following four groups.

Group

Examples

Uppercase letters

A, B, C ...

Lowercase letters

a, b, c ...

Numerals

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Symbols (all characters not defined as letters or numerals)

` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = { } | [ ] \ : " ; ' < > ? , . /

In addition, we also recommend that passwords:

  • Be significantly different from prior passwords.

  • Not contain your name or user name.

  • Not be a common word or name.

  • With only one uppercase letter do not have it located in the first position.
