- Not to use in the password the name of user, the real name or the name of the company.
- Not to make use of a complete word that is recognizable.
If the system allows it, it must be composed by characters of each one of the following four categories:
- To contain uppercase letters (To, B, C, etc.)
- To contain very small letters (to, b, c, etc.)
- To contain numbers (0, 1, 2, etc.)
