Paybook allows you to use a passphrase instead of just a password. This helps you increase the number of characters in your password while allowing you to more easily remember it. For example, “Paybook is #1 all the way!” is exponentially more secure than “Password1” and far easier to remember than “Zk$!M7!e”.
When creating or changing a Passphrase, you should:
- Add spaces between letters and words. For example, instead of “PaybookIsAwesome!”, try “Paybook Is Awesome!” or instead of "password", try "pa ss wo rd".
- Combine letters, numbers and special characters.
- Use uppercase and lowercase letters.
- Aim for at least 10 characters. The longer, the better.
- Change the spelling of words. For example, “password” can become “passwurt”.
- Change your Passphrase regularly.
Your passphrase should NOT:
- Contain your name or Paybook ID
- Be a common phrase, famous quote or song lyrics.
- Be the name of your relatives or friends.
- Be your phone number or address.
- Be a birthday or anniversary date.
NOTE: Please don’t use any examples used here as your passphrase.
