Tips for keeping your password secure

Create a secure password

It is important to have secure passwords not only at mail.com, but also on any other sites you need to log in to, e.g. banks, forums or online shops. With strong passwords, you can better protect yourself from any fraud or unpleasant situations. Secure passwords are called strong. That means they are hard to guess, and not known to anyone except you. The first time you think of a password is when you create an e-mail account. Then you definitely think about how to create a secure password, but do you follow the most important rules for a strong password? At mail.com, we care about the security of your e-mail account, which is why we require the following when you create a password:

  • That it is at least 8 characters long
  • That it contains both uppercase and lowercase letters
  • That it contains numbers
  • That it contains special characters, e.g. "!", "&", "-".

REMEMBER: Do not choose a password that is easy to guess, e.g. personal data such as your initials, your date of birth, or the name of a family member or pet. Nothing that would make it easy for someone to get into your private correspondence without your permission.
