Make sure you create a unique password to help keep someone from breaking in to your account.Here are a few tips for creating your password, and keeping it safe:
  • Your password should be easy for you to remember without being obvious for someone else to guess.
  • Don't choose a dictionary word as your password.
  • Include a variety of characters, such as punctuation marks, numbers, and mix capital and lowercase letters.
  • Never tell anyone your password.
  • Never write down your password. Even if you don't think that somebody would know that it was your Gmail password if they saw it, think of a way to remember it so that you don't have to write it down.
  • Periodically change your password.
