Passphrase Tips

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.
