Password Selection Suggestions

Othius.com is very security conscious. While we do our part to keep your membership secure and private, we would appreciate if you helped us do our job by selecting the best password for your account. Though no password is 100% "hack-proof", following our suggestions can reduce the risk of "password break-in".

Othius.com DOs and DON'Ts of password selection:
DON'T use your login name in any form (as-is, reversed, capitalized, doubled, etc.).
DON'T use your first, middle, or last name in any form.
DON'T use your spouse's or child's name.
DON'T use other information easily obtained about you. This includes license plate numbers, telephone numbers, social security numbers, the make of your automobile, the name of the street you live on, etc..
DON'T use a password of all digits, or all the same letter.
DON'T use a word contained in English or foreign language dictionaries, spelling lists, or other lists of words.
DON'T use a password shorter than six characters.
DO use a password with mixed-case alphabetics.
DO use a password with non-alphabetic characters (digits or punctuation).
DO use a password that is easy to remember, so you don't have to write it down.
DO use a password that you can type quickly, without having to look at the keyboard.

Can't think of a password that follows our suggestions? Try one of the following:

Choose a line or two from a song or poem, and use the first letter of each word.

Alternate between one consonant and one or two vowels, up to seven or eight characters. This provides nonsense words which are usually pronounceable, and thus easily remembered.

Choose two short words and concatenate them together with a punctuation character between them.

Users should also change their password periodically, usually every three to six months. This makes sure that an intruder who has guessed a password will eventually lose access, as well as invalidating any list of passwords he/she may have obtained.
