Choosing a Password

While there is no universal standard for creating a safe password, these tips can help.

When selecting a password for SME Toolkit, use at least 8 characters. For security purposes, choose a password that's hard for others to guess but not hard for you to remember. As you select a password, we'll give you an indication of its strength: weak, fair, or strong.

  • Don't choose a password that contains personal information (such as your name, birth date, etc.).
  • Don't use words found in a dictionary.
  • Don't use the same password for multiple important accounts.
  • Never tell your password to anyone.
  • Never write it down.
