    When selecting a new password, follow these guidelines:
    • The password should not be too similar to the old password.

      The default setting is at least 3 characters should be different from the old password.

    • The password should not be too simple or too short.

      The algorithm here is a point system to satisfy the min password length (the default is length 8 characters). The password gets extra points if it contains a number, upper case, lower case, or special character. Each point is equivalent to 1 character.

    • The password should not be a case change only of the old password or should not be the reverse of the old password.
