at least eight characters long ...

And a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

For your new Google account password, you could use: the author or title of a favorite book a song or song lyric a movie or actor you like or a phrase that is meaningful to you Once you know what you want your new password to be, begin typing it in.

As you type, you will see the strength level of the password.

The levels are weak, fair, or strong.

The best passwords are strong.
