What are the requirements for a Student Finance password?

    • Thread Starter

    I always have to recover my password because i forget what it is but what are the requirements for one i.e. must have caps lock + no consecutive numbers

    Just need to know so I can maybe remember my own password

    Question is what are the requirements for when making a password for my Student Finance account

    Your password is case-sensitive, and needs to:

    -be 8-16 characters long
    -contain at least one number
    -not include your name.

    For your security, you can't use any of the following in your password:
    - any combination which contains your first name, surname or date of birth
    - easily-guessed combinations or sequences - for example 12345689a
    - commonly-used passwords - for example, password1
    - your secret answer (if you've already created one).
