Password requirements

Modified on Fri, 10 Mar, 2023 at 3:03 PM

All passwords must contain at least 8 characters, however there are no requirements on which characters can be used. 


Please see our password recommendations below:


  • Avoid choosing obvious passwords such as the name of your first pet

  • Do not use common passwords such as password123 or 12345678

  • Use a different password from all your other passwords

  • Do not use your CENTURY password elsewhere at work, school or home

  • Do not record your password anywhere, however, if you do need to record it, make sure you record it securely - such as in a sealed envelope in a secure location

  • You can use a password management software such as LastPass, Apple Keychain or 1password
