Explanation

A password must be sufficiently complex that an attacker will be unable to guess it easily. The password that you provided was found on a ‘commonly-guessed’ list of passwords.

Please ensure that

  • Your password must be a mixture of words and numbers
  • Your password should not appear in the list of commonly-guessed passwords provided by security researchers
  • Your password should not have the word 'Password' in it
